One of the missions of BeagleBoard.org is to create a website where anyone can participate, including taking all of the source of the website to create their own. If we were to maintain a long list of usernames and passwords on this site, there might be significant risk of someone using our open nature to hack into the site and steal that information. Besides, it is simply a pain to have to remember a username and password for every new site where you want to contribute. Still, we can't allow people to simply post whatever they want without maintaining some information about their identity, so we need something.
Fortunately, there is OpenID. Using OpenID, you can maintain one username and password across the many sites supporting the standard, without needing to provide them with your password information.
If you don't already have an OpenID account or a preferred provider, go ahead and sign up at wordpress.com and come back when you are done and visit the BeagleBoard.org login page to find out the next steps.
You can learn more about OpenID at SpreadOpenID.org.
You can verify your OpenID at OpenID Checkup by JanRain, Inc.
