Well, i created a new blog for the OpenID site - it is at http://freeopenid.blogspot.com
I also added a new messaging application which allows you to send a message to an OpenID user via their OpenID rather than their email address. This protects you from publicly exposing your email address as all messages go through your OpenID.
Additionally, if your email address changes, you can simply update your OpenID profile and messages to your OpenID will be relayed to the new email address.
Simple, but useful. I think :)
