Ironic

Passpack is an online password manager.

They now allow users to access their store of passwords through OpenID - the supposed antithesis of online password managers.

Separately, if you stored your OP password on Passpack, could you use Passpack to login to your OP, in order to login to Passpack? Or would this create a hole in the space-time continuum?

Probably not. For the facts about how to create such a hole and how to dig yourself out of it, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cause_and_Effect

Thanks for the tip Eric.

But, I thought we had moved beyond thinking about OpenID & the Enterprise?

Hmm... I've been trying to figure out what the openID logo reminded me of.... a Möbius strip

Well, we figured you'd either do one or the other. But if you try such a trick, I doubt you'd create a a hole in the space-time continuum... you'd definitely get stuck though. :)
