What and how is OpenID
For 2 days I'm trying to understand the concept and how it works and still can't. Not one good explanation or demo that someone not familiar with the subject can understand. Very frustrating!

OpenID is an open standard and decentralized authentication protocol. ... Users create accounts by selecting an OpenID identity provider and then use those accounts to sign onto any website that accepts OpenID authentication.
