@Kentucky hahaha... Don't be ashamed. At least you refrained from going after the obvious "blue balls" joke.

See if YOU can spot the differences between these two fictional space men.

The concept of "Open ID" (and I use that term generally) is more or less a server side version of a password vault, with arguably more security concerns around social engineering. You are putting a lot of trust in the sites that host your identity and presumably, their admin/help desk folks that may or may not be able to back door to your identity to "troubleshoot problems". As this method becomes popular, it will also add another means to phish. Or malicious virtual lap dance sites may just collect your user/password anyway on the way to verifying if your login actually works at the authenticator's site. That said, is it any worse than using your same email/password on various sites that maintain their own identity management? (Which a LOT of people do, including techies that should know better). I bet if Jeff implemented his own user/password sign in where he actually stored the password at both here and stack overflow, he would have the gmail, yahoo, hotmail logins of a LOT of users.
