Should the US invest
aggressively in building advanced nuclear reactors?
I think so. If there is an alternative, what is it?
Why I started OneID
Because usernames and passwords are horrible for users: hard to remember,
hard to use, and insecure. They aren't good for service providers either:

identity architecture that is easy to use, private, and secure. It's an
identity that you manage and it's in your control.

currently more than 10 times more accurate than anything else on the market. Customers
Abaca have seen accuracy rates as high
as 99.99% and we have a 100% customer renewal rate. My daughter's school (Castilleja)

happier. Unlike other approaches, with our system, the more they spam, the
more accurate our filter becomes. We are talking to some major ISPs now to
achieve that scale. When we do....watch out! It will be the "holy grail" of

So tell me...just how bad does it have to get before the Presidential
candidates start talking about taking the problem seriously? You'll know
