IBM To Offer Single Sign On To Orange Customers using liberty

this: article makes the broad statement: "The IBM software used complies with the Liberty 1.1 Web Services specifications", which are words i am gratefull for, but thought i would never hear, given IBM's work with the WS-* stack. Will wonders never cease!

The Next Big Thing: Do-It-Yourself: Show #445 (July 09, 2004): "build a rollercoaster in the backyard"... who'd a thunk. and they are right... it really takes guts to ride it yourself after you build it.
