What does this mean? You go to a great web site It supports OpenID No need to create/manage yet another account You can now use Live ID to authenticate
Other major ID providers are working on v2.0 of the protocol (e.g. Yahoo, Google)
No need to manage account-related information on multiple sites
Name, email, web site, interests, etc.
You control which sites are allowed to access your profile information and/or authenticate
