Everything Janrain does is OpenID

The founder, Larry, founded RocketMail before and is now famous for commercializing OpenID with Janrain.

Why hasn't OpenID caught on? The concern is if someone created their ID on another site, they can now login to your site without sharing any personal information (there is no value to the new site).

Behavior marketing is what every site wants, but they need personal information to do it (eg: Show specific ads to all blue-eyes males)
