Pimp my words: OpenID and Microsoft

Here's a piece for IT Pro that I pulled together late last night, as news about Microsoft's support for OpenID rolled around the world.
Speaking at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates outlined the company's refreshed identity strategy - including support in Windows CardSpace for the OpenID 2.0 identity standard. As part of an interoperability agreement OpenID will also be extended to handle phishing-resistant credentials, adding a new layer of trust to ecommerce sites.
Read the rest.

We've recently spoken to folk like Kim Cameron, Dick Hardt (gotta love his blog's URI and title!) and brad about OpenID, and it's been interesting to watch the identity coalition coming together around this and other key identity technologies. Good news for anyone interested in digital identity.
