Yup, you heard it right. For all of you whove been waiting for a long time to hear this, English version is now live. In fact, its been up for few days, but were making the announcement on this blog now because we just thought clearing few things up before officially announcing would help.

ve explained several times why were persistent in pursuing OpenID as one of our core strategies at openmaru. Today, were really showing it. is now open for the world. As another proof, were planning to launch a Japanese version by the end of the year.

There is a reason we
re jumping in as another OpenID provider while there are already few. We have many reasons why we believe myID will be a great service for the users.

For one, is the simplest service out there. Not only it
s got a very accessible domain name in myID but also were striving to make it as simple and easy to use for average users as possible. In fact, myIDwas the top search keyword on, the major openID directory service.

Also, in order to increase the usability of the service, we
re providing a transferable group/contact list. Basically, you can create or even import a contact to myID contact list and have the list exported to any service that supports the myID contact list API. For starters, we have Facebook and Gmail contact list import feature on the way.

re going to explain various features of myID in the next few posts, so please make sure you stay tuned! Till then, why dont you hop in and join the service? :)
