    Obama administration unveils online ID system

    A plan to create a national online identity system was launched today to help combat cyber crime.

    Commerce Secretary Gary Locke claimed the move will protect Internet consumers from fraud and identity theft.

    Unveiling the scheme, he insisted the cyber ID was not a Big Brother plan by the government to snoop on web users.

    To me, that's probably one of the reasons we have government...to protect us from epic-scale fraud. I don't know how it would work, but I don't see much wrong with it.

    I'm pretty sick of seeing MyPayPal.com, YourPayPal.com, PayPalAuthorization.com, PayPalSignIn.com, and all the rest of the fraudish emails in my junk mailbox. Same with CitigroupHelp.com, MyCitigroup. Your Citigroup, yada yada yada. That kind of fraud is probably funding some of the most heinous crimes on the planet, including terrorism.

    Go git 'em!!

    Oh cool, so someone can steal this like our other government ID, the magical social security number.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    In theory, there no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.

    The "how it would work" things is the problematic sticking point.
    If it all happened automagically and was overseen by incorruptible angels, I'd be more willing to consider it.

    Adding complexity to a system increases chances for things to go wrong.
    Putting everything in one basket, even if you "watch that basket" creates a single point of failure.
    Even Google has been hacked.

    I'd just as soon remain responsible for my own cyber-security.


    It is possible that if I knew more about the plan, I may change my mind, but since the theory itself seems flawed, I doubt details of its intended implementation would change my mind.
    I may be wrong.

    I am not a fan of this at all. However, as long as it stays voluntary and in relation to using government services... it won't infringe on my life at all. In fact, it is completely avoidable by just using a pen and paper instead of the internet.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.
