exactly john,

but you know what makes twitter and facebook BIG so they  called  it   
"the social revolution " ?

it wasnt java script or CSS this was invented way before ,  it was  
IMHO  http://oauth.net  so it gives the user the ability

to "comment" " sign up" or "like" without registering or confirmation,  
One klick partizipation is the magic of our social life

The Exchange of profile information with oauth made the world simpler  
but raised a lot of privacy concerns
because you cant verify each app that pulls your information out of  
facebook or twitter.

So i believe the freedombox needs something similar, like http://openid.net 
  or http://oauth.net
  for example because we have centralised  identity providers  allready
