OpenID adoption - any new consumers?

It's more like we've seen the limit of early adopters. Now we just need 
one or two big websites to start allowing linking of their OpenId to 
their existing account systems. We need a sites like Yahoo or Myspace or 
Slashdot to both run servers, and accept OpenId's in lieu of their 
traditional username/password combo. Once we have a few more big names 
using OpenId, you'll start to see a whole lot more of the smaller sites 
following suit.

Ahhh... critical mass, if only it were easy to get.
