The Open Bank Project aims:

Quote
to create a RESTful API so that banks and their customers can securely and cost effectively adopt Web 2.0, Open Source and 3rd party tools, services and strategies. We want to promote greater openness to financial data.

I was contacted by Ismail CHAIB, who wonders if bitcoiners "might be able and interested to contribute to the project."  If defining an API to help bring more transparency to government, nonprofit, and perhaps corporate finances sounds interesting to you (I'd personally like to see much more government financial transparency):

We're using Eviscape (http://eviscape.com/profile/openbankproject/) to manage our community. People interested by the project should register and ask to join the group. We'll add them to our platform.

You can also find us on facebook. http://on.fb.me/f9tApG

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

1) It wants me to register to view their page.
2) Their community is on facebook.

So much for openness. I give them 3/10. Otherwise the idea sounds good & interests me, but I need to see some documents first. And it needs to be out there for all, not weaseled behind walls.

TBH this is too much of a struggle. Having built my latest site around OpenID, the standard is broken. All the providers do sketchy things that break it, and it's needlessly complex as a result of bickering board members. Things like the email field is optional meaning you need a register field anyway. The format for the URL is also unusual.

The difference is that companies WANT OpenID. Banks do not. Not in their interest. Many of their systems are relics from a bygone age.

Good luck to them though. Like the idea.
