Check it out, an OpenID registrar:


I wonder if they'll beat TypeKey to launch.

Although their link to OpenID's website isn't right. :)

well, i doubt they'll beat TypeKey to 2 million users... :)

seriously, though, an identity site with no info about who runs it, no mention of their business plan, no record what jurisdiction they're under, and no privacy policy? I'll wait to judge until their signup is enabled, but that's got me worried.... I don't want people to let nitpicks keep them from getting OpenIDs anywhere, and the privacy zealots are always looking for a reason to fuss.

On the other hand, yay PHP libraries! good for a php monkey like me.

Hopefully their PHP code is better than the shitacular PHP stuff I normally see.

Seriously, after this kewlness you'd think twice before building an OpenID registry on top of PHP, right?

Hey, Anil, how soon until TypeKey offers OpenID with your TypeKey profile?
