OpenID attempts to take advantage of already existing internet technology, and allow users of social web sites to simply transform existing URLs into accounts which can be used at sites which support OpenID logins.
By joining OpenID, MySpace is aiming to give users control of their login and their digital identity, allowing them to use their MySpace URL as their identity at all the websites which support OpenID.
In addition to its support of the OpenID movement, MySpace announced two new implementations of its Data Availability initiative with Flixster and Eventful.
In addition, MySpace has created enhancements to the Data Availability initiative which allow for caching and
storage of users content and data.--Gavin O'Malley
