"One Ring to rule them all?"

On their website are some rhetorical questions that are designed to show support for a 'single signon' solution:

Do you change your name as you travel around town during the day?

Are you Cameron at work, Sidney at your favorite bistro, and Jamie at home?

And my response is:

Yes, actually, I *am* different people at different sites - in my real and online lives. OpenID is fine, but what is really needed is a way to *manage* multiple profiles for various reasons - not lump them all into one.

i think you have it right Michael, managing multiple roles and having the ability to selectively disclose your various roles and your personally selected methods for revelation is, to me, the essence of the the activity around Open ID -

The key for all participants is the ability from your own person to manage authenication,personal privacy,levels of personal profile disclosure.

For this to happen we need what JOhn Hagel, in his book Net Gain
published 10 years ago called "the trusted source infomediary"

Banks can't do it, the government obviously can't gain citizen trust to do it, who then? = in EBay its the rating system, it government it's the Social Security number and the passport, in states it's the driver's license,in commerce it's the credit card and the check,in a variety of affinity networks it's your membership card in the voting booth it's your voter's registration,, in tax-paying its your Tax ID number.

Thinking about it this way makes you wonder just WHO you are,

I like the IDea of personal control of all my profile, surfing, emailing and other cyberspace activities -and yet I use gmail( and suffer the invasion of my privacy that using google's mail service, or google groups, or google reader represents.

It's so convenient, we forget about the loss of personal privacy and personal control of information about each of us.

There needs to be a universal ID process that reduces our need for multiple sign-ons, multiple user ID, multiple passwords, etc.

This is a big deal, and we need to find ways to solve it.
