When I first saw this cartoon in my aggregator it made me laugh and sigh.
At the privacy event at MIT at the beginning of this month the word on the street was that both OpenID as we know it and information cards as we know it are both “dead”.
I am a bit afraid for naming this “whispered fact” in the public blogosphere. The reason I am doing it is because I am very interested in learning more from people who were at the event about what was covered and what they think is promising.
I do know that there is energy behind moving OpenID ABC forward and John Bradley & Nat Sakimura are working hard on it.
