The idea behind the OpenID project is to allow internet users to have one login and one password to log into a variety of sites.

Those who have already joined the OpenID group include AOL, Blogger, Yahoo, and Flickr.

MySpace, with over 100 million members, will now be joining up as well. More than 4,500 sites now accept OpenIDs, with over 120 million in use.

MySpace will not allow members to use their login profiles or details on other sites though, keeping that private to their site.
