I played around a bit with FreeYourID.com this morning. The service gives you a personalized URL, email address, and an OpenID. The domains are in the .name TLD. This is an interesting concept: combine three identity services into one and offer real personalization. They're giving free 90 day trials.

in some ways this reminds me of a poor-man's i-name. i-names are resolvable to various services. Right now, you've got to use an URL transform to make i-names work, so using them is not as straightforward as it be if browsers did native XRI resolution.
