MySpace Half Adopts OpenID

MySpace today is announcing support for the OpenID identify platform. This means users of services that let you log in to them with OpenID will be able to use their MySpace credentials for the login. As TechCrunch pointed out, though, this appears to be a "land grab for user identities," since MySpace isn't allowing users to log in to MySpace with an OpenID account from another identity provider

(from CNET). They do plan to be a site that recognizes other OpenID logins (i.e., ones created on a site other than MySpace) soon.
