One up for Michael Arrington:
It’s time for these companies to do what’s right for the users and fully adopt OpenID as relying parties. That doesn’t fit in with their strategy of owning the identity of as many Internet users as possible, but it certainly fits in with the Internet’s very serious need for an open, distributed and secure single log in system (OpenID is all three).
With “these companies” referring to AOL, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo!. I couldn’t agree more.
