should I get an openID? Do you have one?

as I understand it so far:
-convenience of not having to remember dozens of logins when I visit sites online. As I understand it, I just type in my openid url.
-this seems like a real security threat. Whether from phishing scams and fake redirects on questionable websites, to just having a bunch of my logins in a central openid location which if compromised is rather like losing my online wallet.
Thoughts? Recommendations? Thanks!!
