Here’s an Idea from the Techcraver to Google – free of charge – you guys should host OpenID’s as a service. This makes sense on multiple levels. It’ll help speed adoption, and many people (such as myself) use Google for services already – so it would blend naturally. And people trust Google. Google could implement OpenIDs in a friendly and easy way, just like the way Apple helped podcasting by incorporating them into iTunes.
Plus Google has always been behind open source and standardized projects, so this might make sense for them to throw their hat into the ring.
So if anyone at Google is reading – please take this into consideration!
