Responses to "prediction" newsletters usually
come in hard and fast, and last week's predictions newsletter was no exception.

I had a very interesting call with a guy
responsible for a whole lot of identity stuff at a company we all would
recognize on friday of last week. The "interesting" part began in him
initiating the call (normally, I do such things). Come to find out that
he was doing so because he was in search of "the next big thing" in
identity (or what's on the horizon), and wanted to get my take on it.

sites. Yahoo controls a domain me.yahoo.com, which shows a short message indicating the company will act as an identity provider for OpenID. OpenID, an open-source project, has gained support from two other major Internet players, Microsoft and Google. However, those companies are not widely providing support on
their sites for OpenID yet.
