Jeff Attwood makes an interesting suggestion about managing user identity on the world-wide-web. He argues that normal users having to remember username/passwords for every web service they use, is a huge problem and it indeed is. He postulates some high-level solutions as his dream (without getting too specific about the implementation details) and they are pretty interesting. I do believe web browsers will get better with time and his suggestions for identity management will be baked into browsers in some form. Here’s hoping that we all live to see that day the dream comes true.
