40 Million OpenIDs (being) Minted in France

Orange SA, a subsidiary of France Telecom, has announced they will verify accounts for their 40 million users to any site supporting OpenID. This is another great step for OpenID and is already being reported on by major blogs.

With organizations like Orange supporting OpenID, stepped up education efforts, and OpenID 2.0 implementations baking in the oven, OpenID is set to close out 2007 strong.
