I'm getting a steady volume of Google Alerts about OpenID lately, so I checked out Google Trends:
Look at all the interest from Russia.... wow.
there is a fair amount of openid interest here, though people are still confused with what it actually is

Define "here". You're at some conference or something now, right?
Russia love you, Brad!!)))

i was planning to make very-uber-super-simple OpenID accounts registration system (a website where you can make just openid account for yourself and don't mess with complex systems providing other services/lots of unnecessary info/etc) in the beginning of 2005, but abandoned this idea due to my overwhelming laziness (although the main engine was ready, just wasn't thoroughly tested) and still high prices for traffic in siberia.
later i heard about other guys doing the same stuff all around the world.
seems like people are starting to understand that openid is great. :D
well. let me guess. sixapart makes a deal with sup. and the first pr action of sup is to make its future policy clear to the 'cyrillic' audience: sup is not just a 'technical service' company, they seem to influence the content of 'cyrillic' part of lj. at least their top managers are mostly journalists, but not just managers and/or technicians, and their public behavoiur is not politcorrect.
most of 'cyrillic' people vote they are disappointed with the sup deal.
lots of people want to have journals separated from sup administration and thus consider to move to some other place. but sure, they want remain in touch with thier lj friends enviroment, they want to have some interoperability with lj. and thus, openid is the key issue. that's why it could become so popular with russians.
hmm... so, what is your policy to share friends enviroment with other blog communities?
In Mother Russia, OpenID Google Alerts YOU!

You have already started to learn Russian?
Russians love parties, LiveJournal and OpenID. Three reasons to move to Moscow :))
May have something to do with your explanation of how SUP will be performing SSO - through OpenID, accidently.

OpenID broken on TypeKey
I'm hoping that you know the right person to talk to on this, but it seems that you can no longer use your TypeKey profile page as an OpenID login. I have been doing that for quite some time, but I noticed that it was broken last night. If I'm not logged in, I get the "This is an OpenID server endpoint..." message. If I already have a TypeKey cookie, I'm thrown into a loop of redirects. Look like it's broke.

Re: OpenID broken on TypeKey
They just upgraded TypeKey the other day and apparently broke it. I passed your comment along and it turns out somebody else had reported it too. I'll try and help get it fixed.
