Another hare started from Mary Branscombe’s InfoCard piece.

Chris Overd emails to point out that its first sentence "is rather misleading. InfoCard is not, in any shape or form, a replacement for Microsoft Passport". In support, he points at a blog posting from Trevin Chow here.

Well, that seems fair enough, but all I can say is "why not?". I realise that InfoCard can complement Passport but every time I come into contact with Passport I seem to have a lousy time! Perhaps this makes me more inclined to believe that Passport is on the way out. I suppose I should know better by now.
