Can we please drop the "driver license" metaphor? "Passport" is much more accurate. A license gives one permission to perform an action whereas a passport establishes identity. I can hold a barber's license, but it wouldn't tell you anything at all about if I am actually that person. And why do barbers need licenses anyway?

Here's where the driver license analogy breaks down: I have physical control over my license, it stays with me. No one can lose my license for me. Also, I would dispute the assertion that third-party auth makes the internet better, rather it is a transfer of responsibility from users to the third party. This post also doesn't address what I thought was Rob Conery's best argument, that it is entirely plausible to end up with multiple accounts at the same site be using multiple sign in providers. Not so much "single sign on" at that point.

I've gotten hooked on the TypeMatrix keyboard. The layout is slightly different, with the enter backspace, and delete keys in the middle of the keyboard. It takes about a week to get used to, but the payoff is worth it. My wrists feel great and my typing speed is up.
