How many accounts do you have?

I recently took an accounting of the number of accounts that I have. Uhh… over 30.

That means that I have more than 30 places online for someone to hack my life but more importantly, 30 places that can lose my identity. A lot of these places I never use anymore: Friendster, MySpace, and so on.

Software like OpenID offers the hope of consolidating your IDs and putting the power back in your hands. I’d like to open an account with them but I fear it would just be account number 31.
