was asked today to register to dropbox AGAIN – i just unregistered of the ‘unused’ service a couple of weeks ago and there it pops up again
was asked also to register to two new sites today http://slack.com and http://eventbrite.fr each of them wanting to engage and activate me for the rest of my days
honestly i m loosing trail – when you re an active member of both physical and digital society you need to register twice a day for two new services that someone else is loving and using and however they are ment to make everything easier to organise things better it’s just two MORE services on top of the others and i get pretty stressed about that
i don’t see the trees anymore in the forest not in the least because i get warnings and activation and engagement messages all the time and the real messages get lost
ps : and while i m writing this i get an email to join https://myopportunity.com – but frankly : i will not !!
full is also my head
one of my daughters and some friends asked me lately why i don t have messenger – how on earth can you live without messenger ? how can i send you pictures of the weekend ? i don t have messenger indeed but that doesn’t prevent me from living 😉
in order to streamline my communications and relations with the world i already started to gradually delete some accounts whats app, viber are out in favour of skype email sms and just a simple phone call – let’s see how that will work
but that doesn t stop the number of registrations growing and i d rather keep some space up here for something else than remembering passwords
although my password generation trick is pretty cool it s not always accepted by all sites
so what does there exist to cope with that ?
except the keychain access app on mac ?
isn’t there a cool and fancy service where i can register one last time and spend the rest of my earthly and digital life using the same identity ?
openid for example ? here are some examples of openid logins and interesting : it seems i have an unused gmail account that is in effect an openid (??!!), but honestly who wants to login in a site with his gmail account making it possible to be spammed or tracked more and more and more ? or am i completely paranoiac ?
from the janrain website i learn :
Let your website and mobile visitors easily register and log in with their existing social network and email identities from Facebook, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn and more than 30 other providers. Improve registration rates by 50% and open the door to collecting rich permission-based customer profile data.
Automatically collect, store and manage demographic, psychographic and behavioral customer profile data in a flexible, powerful cloud database. Easily visualize, segment and update customer profiles to enable true personalized marketing.
ouwtch – i d rather go for my own openid – wired explained already in 2010 (!!) how to create your own – and you can find more on the openid wiki – succes ! now we only need more sites out there that use openid for access
