Is Plaxo the open identity system we're waiting for?

Wednesday, July 18, 2007 by Dave Winer.

A picture named augustusCaesar.gifNick Gonzalez at TechCrunch explains that Plaxo is creating an open identity system with an API that others can build applications on.  Permalink to this paragraph

He calls this "open source" -- but that's neither accurate nor does it explain why this is so significant.  Permalink to this paragraph

If anyone at Plaxo is listening, I'd like to find out more about what you're doing so I can explain it in the context of other identity systems. It sounds like it might be the open identity system we're waiting for. Permalink to this paragraph
