Novell, a company whose operating system for Intel servers was largely replaced by Microsoft Windows, has joined the Liberty Alliance Project to simplify how digital identity is handled on the Internet. Novell hopes to contribute its expertise in directory software, which keeps track of data such as usernames, passwords and computing resources a person is allowed to use, the company said Monday.

Microsoft has indicated that a warmer relationship is possible, as long as the effort doesn't turn into a Microsoft-bashing gang. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News

High praise for AOL emerged last week from the FT's Lex Column, which is now prepared to admit that the firm's success is based on much more than "mere hype". Intel's Gordon Moore gives over £7 million to Cambridge University, Sunday Business reports on the looming battle for interactive services as part of digital offerings and the Wall Street Journal reports on how American car manufacturers are going online in a big way.
