Hi David,
I want to help build a new RoR OpenID provider.

I built and actively work on the ibroker at and 
several dependent applications in RoR and I was a core committer on the 
team that built the first ibroker at I, too, have learned a 
few lesson along the way. Linksafe is committed building and using open 
source code and needs a strong OpenID provider. I'd like to help evolve 
a new provider that furthers the vision we all loosely share for a 
robust interconnected web of identity.
