Discussion notes:

User centric technologies are in decline. InfoCards are past their due date and OpenID is moving away from being user centric.

The belief is this is due to a lack of industry players with significant financial incentives to make it happen, as well as players with negative financial incentives.

The other reason is that the technology was immature on launch and was not able to meet security, functionality and/or usability requirements.
