Thought this might interest you guys as well.

 

Anyone know of any deals being signed along these lines?

Yahoo Is A Surprising Second Among User-Authentication Services

No surprise: most chat participants opting to use a third-party
authentication service go for the popular Facebook Connect. More of a
surprise: signing in with a Yahoo account is the second most popular
choice.

hmmm - wondering if this going to turn into a service provider war?

How much would Facebook/Yahoo/Twitter pay me as a website content
provider to have my users authenticate against their services
exclusively?

Surely there has to be value associated to Yahoo that you 'have' to use
a Yahoo username in order to authenticate to my website.

Do you think Yahoo would pay per user per month or maybe even per user
per login?
