User-centric identity vs the walled garden

Bex Huff says: Identity Management Will Destroy Social Software. Or, once you have a distributed infrastructure for sharing your personal profile, things start to get interesting.

I wonder what it means for the ePortfolio systems around today.

Ultimately every service likes to thing of themselves as a an identity provider; but in reality almost everything only needs to be an identity consumer. Explode went through this realization, and I think their platform is stronger as a result.
