It was just a matter of time... Google plans to kill passwords

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Nobody would be happier than I to see the end of passwords - as it stands right now I have more than a hundred different passwords for home, office, web and other applications (I have an algorithm I use to make sure they're all different, but can be remembered). What's all the more frustrating is that passwords aren't very secure and can be hacked pretty quickly by experts. Hence my interest in the development of the Yubikey, a physical key you insert into a USB slot which logs you into all your websites. Right now it looks like it's Google-only (it would be nice if they developed one system for all browsers and platforms, but what are the odds of that?).
