I’ve posted a fair few things on here about shared identity, most recently on the Yahoo-Flickr fallout and the apparent accidental creation of an open identity platform. For a far more considered and intelligent view of this space, check out the Identity2.0 OSCON Presentation from Dick Hardt, founder and CEO of Sxip Identity. Hardt makes a compelling case for the inevitable emergence of Identity 2.0, a scalable architecture of shared identity where identity providers offer digitally verified identities which users can then exploit on different online resources. Very nice, very compact, tremendously exciting.
