@djsundog Do you mean like stop requiring so much authentication? There's too much.
@Jason_Dodd I mean give end users an easy-to-use and easy-to-keep-private way to log in to arbitrary web services without requiring them to choose to either register yet another set of (hopefully) unique credentials, re-use a silo's authentication, acquire additional hardware, or be technical enough to run their own authentication services. Basically I'm just being grumpy because I'm adding auth to a thing, again.
One of the big problems was that OpenID helped you create a new profile and subsequently log into it. But you still had to populate the profile in the new system and find all your friends. We needed decentralised profiles and social graphs as well.
