Chris Messina pointed me to claimID, an interesting service that allows you to gather your various accounts (Flickr, etc.) into a single public list of “verified” identities.

My claimID profile is here – I haven’t verified all of the sites/accounts I’ve added yet, and I’ve probably forgotten a half dozen sites/accounts I should add, but it’s kind of cool to have a list of everything in one place. I think I’ll add a link to this on my About page.

This is a pretty interesting service to me, because I think it’s a little ahead of its time for a lot of folks. Of course if you’re relying almost entirely on external services for your online persona, this might be something you want to use now.
