We had an interesting submission to the OpenID Directory yesterday: Reebok has built one of the first commercial sites build around a worldwide brand with OpenID login: Run Easy tries to build communities from runners around the world.

A new submission to the OpenID Directory that makes sense for almost all of us: An online tool to track your expenses, either your own ones or your shared expenses with friends or groups of people, e.g. when traveling together.
