1st line of 2nd paragraph is missing a "to": "Excitement for technology like OpenID is not limited to the private sector."
Is it completely different from OpenID?
Thats a very good initiative to have a centralized database for all users.It is very similar to banking industry which have bureaus to maintain customers' information across different banks.My only concern is based upon a point that when more and more information is brought together the risk of misusing this information increases.Therefore, such a system needs to be dealt with high security and accuracy.
Congratulations to Google!The need for a verifiable identity with a convenient mechanism to link publication to source has been obvious for many years. Google is in a position to provide a big part of the solution.
I have to say I think it's an amazing idea that we should be tied in to all of our information with one unique setup, but I think there will always be those "out-there" folks who believe this will be a violation of their privacy and freedom of information act. If it could be done painlessly I think you would see less squaking but in theory I'm for the idea.
no way in the world would i give the u.s government my google login info!or any other login info for that matter. google is pretty naive to be working so closely with government in general and this administration in particular. they have shown themselves to be just as devious and deceitful as previous administrations and downright scary with their secret aims to socialize america. we need less government interference and control in our lives, not more. i trust private industry, not government. keep all these initiatives private. dont cooperate with government. google is really starting to scare me now. to me, cooperating with the u.s. government is evil. dont do it.
I dream of a world with everyone having an electronical device provided by the government that would replace everything we have now in our pockets. It would replace credit cards and money. This kind of system is already working in Europe. It would also be used as a smartphone. Everything would be related to this, including your official online account. We could even vote with this kind of device. Making an association of google accounts with individuals via the government is a great idea and a step forward a "centralized" future where we would only need a single device to identify ourselves to do everything. The possibilities are endless.
I agree that having a government standard is important to things like log in, but as technology is progressing, will the government be able to update its standards as fast as hackers are updating their techniques? I think that the government will have a big job on their hands if they want to constantly monitor the technology of hackers, especially if many websites are connected via log in. Because if someone finds a way to hack it, many websites could be breached
