Shakedown 2.0?

This is my second test blog where you'll find news and opinions on the latest happenings surrounding the internet, technology, entertainment, et. al.
Why the name? "Shakedown" is a period of testing or trial journey undergone by a ship, plane or other craft before declared operational. 2.0 simply because it's my second trial blog [see the first blog here]

Yahoo To Support OpenID Standard

Yahoo announced Thursday that it is supporting the OpenID standard for a universal Internet log-in. Once the new Yahoo ID service is live, people with a Yahoo user name and password will be able to use that ID information to access non-Yahoo Web sites that support the OpenID 2.0 digital identity framework, reducing the amount of different log-in information people need to create, remember and enter online.

Yahoo’s 248 million users worldwide is a huge addition to the current OpenID members which is just around 120 million OpenID accounts so far. OpenID is designed to facilitate single log-ins for multiple unaffiliated Web sites. Gradually, large sites like AOL and Plaxo have begun supporting the standard, but it remains a tool for the Web's early-adopter set rather than the online community at large.

Yahoo launches its OpenID in public beta form on January 30.
