Interesting article about a potential project involving google, paypal, verizon and others.
“Open Identity Exchange (OIX) is a newly founded non-profit organization, launched today at the RSA Conference 2010 by Google, PayPal, Equifax, VeriSign, Verizon, CA and Booz Allen Hamilton. The aim of this new organization is exchange of online identity credentials across public and private sectors; in other words, it can certify online identity providers to U.S. federal standards.”
Hmm… Google, Paypal, and Verizon?

So, I’m the admin for like 5 different google groups. I’ve set the groups to moderation for new members and membership has to be approved. Still, still, we are getting hit with spam. Finally, as a desperate last measure, I’ve closed the list down for reading, unless you are logged in. I kind of wanted to keep the list open for reading, but oh well…
I discovered that google groups is being hit with spam and there has even been some chatter on the ‘net that google is slowly dumping google groups. I don’t know that to be true, but there’s the ‘net gossip and the Jquery list dumped google groups back in October.

Lots of reflection on google including gmail, google apps, chrome & android/mobile.
To the future:
