Interesting discussion on the Interaction Design Association list  
about the idea of a shared identity across the communities we are  
involved in.

I think this is a very interesting idea for Fluid and our communities  
as many of our users need to keep track of their various  
institutional identities in their LMS, CLE, Portals, SIS, etc.   
Identity management component anyone?  I could see user's managing  
their institutional identity independent of our systems and the  
systems then utilize what is relevant in their context.

P.S.  You can check out the full discussion at ixda.org.
