  1. Encourage OpenID websites to offer non-OpenID alternatives

    OpenID might be OK for some, but every time I see a website that uses OpenID, it says to me: "Give up now, you ain't gonna be able to log in here.". Passwords are better, 'cos they are simpler, everyone understands them, and there are existing mechanisms to manage them. I just tried logging into stackoverflow with my OpenID and ended up creating a new user. I'm not saying get rid of OpenID, just that it makes things slower and more complicated, and is hard to understand, so a traditional password alternative should be a good fallback. Here is an…

  3. Allow data exchange between relying parties

    Some social sites allow webmail account logins on behalf of the user to build contact lists (find your Facebook friends from your GMail contacts; simply enter your GMail username and password). That involves distributing a password to a third-party, never a great idea.

    I wonder if OpenID can be extended to solve this problem, by creating a one-time login token (or a smarter mechanism in the same spirit); of course user approbation is crucial.

  6. OpenID on Google, AOL, Yahoo not really OpenID

    As a supporter and user of OpenID, I have a hard time explaining how Google, Yahoo, AOL and other "openID providers" are really involved.

    A search of their sites does not reveal any useful explanation. They're merely using their login procedures as an OpenID token. Their login boxes don't look, act, feel, or represent the user--they represent the company (Goog, AOL, etc.) Those sites are not promoting OpenID in any clear way.

    People want to use existing accounts, but these companies are creating tremendous confusion by hiding. What's up with that?

  11. Recognize sites that both provide and accept OpenID

    Recognize sites that are both APs and RPs by creating some sort of official designation for those sites that do this. It is good for OpenID if sites both accept and provide OpenID because users can eliminate credentials in more sites and are free to choose which provider they want to use for their credentials and are free to move them at will.
