  3. 4. The Problem with Federations? A federation ( Latin : foedus, foederis , 'covenant'), also known as a federal state , is a type of sover eign state char acterized by a union of partially s elf-g overning states or regions united by a c entral (federal) government. In a federation, the self-governing status of the component states is typically constitutionally entrenched and may not be altered by a unilateral decision of the central government. The United Federation of Planets, also known as "The Federation" is a fictional interplanetary federal republic depicted in the Star Trek television series and motion pictures. In thos e episode s and films, the Federation is described as an interstellar federal polity with, as of the year 2373, more than 150 member p lanets and th ousands of colo nies s pread across 8,000 light years of the Milky Way Galaxy , and ta king the form of a post-c apitalis t liberal democracy and constitutional republic . A Federation is multiple computing and/or network provide rs agreeing upo n standards of o peration in a col lective fashion. The t erm may be use d when describi ng the i nter-operation of two distinct, formally disconnected, telecommunications networks that may have different internal structures. The term may also be used when groups attempt to delegate collective authority of development to preve nt fragmentation . Wikipedia , 28th February 2011

  9. 10. We first jumped on the OpenID bandwagon back in 2007 when it was seen as a promising way to make logging into websites simpler. What we've learned over the past three years is that it didn't actually make anything any simpler for the vast majority of our customers. Instead it just made things harder. Especially when people were having problems with the often flaky OpenID providers and couldn't log into their account. OpenID has been a burden on support since the day it was launched. -- 37signals drops OpenID support OpenID is the worst possible "solution" I have ever seen in my entire life to a problem that most people don't really have .  That's what's "wrong" with it. Yishan Wong on Quora “ You have one identity,” Zuckerberg emphasized three times in a single interview with David Kirkpatrick in his book, “The Facebook Effect.” “The days of you having a different image for your work friends or co-workers and for the other people you know are probably coming to an end pretty quickly.” He adds: “Having two identities for yourself is an example of a lack of integrity.” No one's Facebook account is safe from hackers. Not even the social networking site's founder Mark Zuckerberg's! A fan page dedicated to the site's creator was hacked Tuesday. Seems like Zuckerberg had been so busy announcing protection measures for Facebook's users that he forgot to protect his own account. The Money Times
