There's an interesting proposal on DaveNet about creating a decentralized system for membership in different websites. It's kinda like what Microsoft Passport attempts to do, but without the centralized privacy concerns. It's a concept that we've talked about within OSDN - a decentralized login service - and it appears that the protocols are reaching the point that it'd possible and useful. I guess the issue would be what data gets passed around and such.
