I was one of many to receive an email yesterday from Janrain CEO Larry Drebes announcing that its longstanding identity service MyOpenID will be shut down effective February of next year. The reason is simple: few people were using it, compared to the hordes using login services offered by facebook, Google, Twitter and others. As Janrain's blog shows, Facebook is winning the identity wars. Disappointing. But now if outsourced logins are becoming the future, I guess I'll need to learn how to integrate them.
