In the past few weeks there has been a bunch of steps take toward making OpenID the identity standard on the web. At the end of January I questioned whether OpenID is going mainstream with the addition of OpenID to Firefox 3.0. A week later, I wrote about Kim Cameron’s announcement of OpenID becoming interoperable with Windows CardSpace. Just yesterday, Johannes Ernst said that AOL is building in OpenID to their infrastructure. It’s beginning to look like this may just be the year of OpenID. Will everyone be using one login for all their memberships in the next year? At this rate, I would bet on the masses beginning to embrace OpenID by the end of the year. It will be interesting to see what happens.
