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.
