There is OpenID... But the pickup has been limited to mainly early
adapters. http://myopenid.com

I'm not too familiar with it, but my interaction with it has been
kind of hit and miss. It's a bit difficult to fully grok how it works
to start out. The whole process could be even more streamlined in my
opinion.

Will's essay made me wonder something. Does any software exist to
help me
manage the identities I present at various online sites?

As he points out, online identities tend to be fragmented. My social
circles rarely interact, especially the online ones, and I present
different
faces to each (not necessarily on purpose, but as a side effect of the
communities' purposes and social norms). I find it hard to keep
track of
all of them.

On the most simple level, for instance, I might want a way to update my
avatar on most of the communities I frequent. (Even simpler, I don't
remember what my username is on some of them anymore! I want
something to
keep track of that.) Another thing I might want to do is see a
summary of
where I've been active and where I haven't. Or keep track of friends
lists
in various places.

Anyone?
