[tdwg-tag] OpenID - is it for us?

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone have any experience with OpenID?


Would this be a useful and simple way to provide cohesion within our  
community if one of the bigger members (GBIF, TDWG, EoL etc) acted as  
an Open ID provider?

I know there were presentations on Shibboleth at TDWG 2007.


OpenID seems simpler but does no authorization I believe (it is just  
an ID solution). Could the two be integrated for those who need to  
share notions of authorization...

I'd be interested to hear people's thoughts on this.
