Identity is not important for the modern internet. An identity token *might* be. There are two reasons for site logins. One to reestablish state between sessions to the appropriate user. Two to sell user data. Imagine if you had to login to a tv channel to watch that channels content. TV prior to the internet the most consumed massed distribution channel on earth, provided anonymity to its users. Mostly because it was low tech, and because it was conceptually top down, viewers dont matter as long as they are watching. I view the login problem not as a gordian knot, but as a low tech problem, which is essentially unsolveable due to the cowardice of the collective efforts of engineers who are driven by business people who just want to collect as much user data as possible. Lets face facts, the inventors of the internet fucked this up. It was one of the first things they fucked up and we will live with it for a fucking long time.

You are the 100th person that has described Metro as beautiful. It's about the ugliest thing I have ever seen. Primary colors with white icons? This is practically Hot Dog Stand 2012. So stop showing bad taste, that is ugly shit. Second, it has no real functional purpose, (Metro), I can see no design sense or rationale behind the layout or sizes of the tiles which will all end up being ads anyway when you buy one of these things. I agree with the notion that MS needs to be awakened from its doldrums, but wait do I really? Why would I want a typewriter manufacturer in the consumer space where it doesnt belong? MS builds garbage for corporations who eat garbage for lunch and pay a high price for it. Im happy with them continiuing to do that, while I use innovative stuff. MS has nothing to offer me that I will ever want besides an Xbox and thats pretty much that.

it seems there might be an opening here for a company to outsource the storage of secure data, so that it is not under the control of companyxyz. Best practices will not be followed. Market forces are too late to address this.
Its not you dude. Google is becoming the new Yahoo, one spam result at a time. The sad part is without google the web is nothing. With all the technology improvements, nothing has really improved. Its time to get VC out of tech and start building things that work. The web has turned into a get rich quick scheme.

A commenter said: 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. But - hey, maybe it should be exactly like a drivers license. Physical.
