Hi All

To put in some context,  2 of the UK federation members - 9Star and 
SixApart - have offered effectively free identity providers for guest 
accounts for sometime.  They are Protect Network and TypeKey.  9Star / 
Protect Network has recently decided to start charging for these 
services...but the model they are adopting is not to charge individuals 
for accounts but to charge Service Providers that consume these identities.

For most of you, I will assume that you will probably NOT want to pay 
for these services and will just be able to ignore this - although it 
might be worth checking your logs to see if you have any significant use 
cases where individuals are using Protect Network identities.

The UK federation is now considering whether it might offer a 'guest 
account' or 'home for the homeless' type service in the face of the 
changing business models from services like Protect Network...it would 
be interesting to get feedback on whether this would be a valuable offering.

Hope that helps but drop me a line if you have any further questions.
