I want more OpenID

I really like the concept of OpenID. From a technical point of view it’s a beautiful solution as it takes a creative approach on authentication while still relying on existing (and proven) technologies. Then there is the part about it having the potential of making my, and others, life easier. It would be awfully nice not having to use a separate login for every forum, wiki, etc I happen to visit now and then.
While there are lots of official support for the standard and plenty of OpenID providers available, the web sites where you can actually use your OpenID are still few. If you operate a web site which require visitors to login, please take a close look at OpenID. I would most definitely like to be able to use my OpenID more.
Myself I work on a project which, among other things, hopefully will enable OpenID login at the Swedish Ubuntu LoCo. In case you happen to be familiar with the language, you can read more about it in the thread OpenID, SSO, etc för ubuntu-se.org.
Yes, I would really appreciate it if you took a closer look at OpenID.
