obligatory xkcd reference on password reuse:

btw i'm quite interested by all this articles against password reuse 
while at the same time there are a lot of people asking for single sign 
on over the web, isn't something contradictory ?

And what about services like "last pass": aren't we just moving our 
problems to the "simple one" of the relying entirely our security on one 
single master password ? it's kind scary .
