Marc on the OpenID UX Workshop at facebook and Me on what we need from the BigCos

Marc blogging about  Facebook hosting an OpenID summit. Marc begins to point to the crux of this whole thing. If the BigCos are serious – they are going to have to act as RPs – even in some limited way – otherwise there is no freedom. On that topic, as I have mentioned before, Microsoft via its HealthVault initiative has actually federated Live ID with 3 other OpenID providers – that is the kind of thing we need. I need to the BigCos to respect the people I trust to vouch for my identity. Well, we need to find a mutually trusted third party and it isn’t any of the people who were at the UX confab.
