Let me be really clear.
I like URL's for SSO. I think they are great. I have since the first I
heard about them.
I think the model is very empowering truly (except for the domain name
part) decentralized. I think it will be great for millions of web literate
folks. Weather they have their own domain or if they just have a blog and
use that URL. The way wiki travel is doing it to support interop between
the different wiki travel sites is cool too.
I want to see this model flourish.
This is a Yes AND situation. The AND is I don't think it will work for
'everyone' and particularly the user communities that I got inspired to try
and build social networks for the Spiritual Activists. There are lots of
web-literate folks on this list who can weave their way through domain
naming and setting up stuff on their servers. I feel that part of my role is
to speak up for those who are less technically savy and what could work for
them in a ubiquitous identity layer.
Diversity is good. Collaboration is good.
I hope we can all get along.
