What do you think about OpenID? Is it safe? What's the best OpenID provider?

It's great for what it is. You have to watch out for phishing, but it's not a big deal.

I like Verisign. They have a Firefox plugin that automatically logs you into OpenID websites and prevents phishing.

Here is a good podcast on the topic - http://www.grc.com/securitynow.htm#95

Check out myVidoop.com. Vidoop built it's own OpenID Provider site and wrapped Vidoop Secure(tm) their Image based Security solution around it.
