OpenID and Social Network Fatigue

Steve O'Hear reports that Bill Gates "has announced that Redmond will work with the "web 2.0 crowd" to support OpenID. OpenID is an open and decentralised system that allows users to log-in to multiple sites via a single user-name — something which I've previously argued would go someway to combating social network fatigue. But what's in it for Microsoft? Gates said that in return it hoped OpenID would support its own CardSpace standard."

Seems like Explode would be able to play nicely into that strategy.
