My online password jumble (18 Oct 2004)
I opened a Gmail account last week, in the spirit of investigation (and not for real use as I still don't trust the ad-serving model Google have built), and had to come up with yet another username.

But I reused one of my standard passwords, because I simply do not have the time to think of new ones.

Sadly, few publishers or site providers seem to care about the situation, even though it is probably damaging people's willingness to sign up.
