Online identity is one of the big web issues of 2007. At least, I said it would be, I I still think so.
So I was interested to find out about (via TechCrunch) FreeYourID, which takes your name, appends .name to the end of it to generate an email address, domain name, and OpenID. But I’m not enthusiastic:
- I don’t feel the need for the .name stuff.
- Even if I did, somone else has already grabbed andrew.watson.name.
- FreeYourID costs $, after the initial 90-day free trail.
So I’ll stick with my claimID.
