For info... I blogged about this a while back


but the only (informal) reaction I got was along the lines of "Linden
Lab are not interested in OpenID".  Linden Lab is the owner of Second
Life - i.e. Linden Lab is the potential member of OIDF.

I have a couple of contacts at LL (on the educational side of things)
and could ask for a better (i.e. more senior technical) contact if that
would help??
