Pottermore, J. K. Rowling's online Harry Potter experience, is now open to all wishing to join in on the experience.  The change was made early this morning in the UK and is indicated on the official website with the question "Are you magical?"  Users may sign up now, while actual invitations should start arriving-- care of owls, surely-- over the next few days.  The Pottermore Insider blog reads:

Get ready to begin your Pottermore journey, because is now opening to everyone.
Over the coming days, we'll be inviting new users onto We're expecting to be really busy to start with and plan to activate new registrations in a steady stream. This means that you may not get access to Pottermore immediately after you sign up but we will get you exploring the site as quickly possible.
After you've signed up, you'll get sorted into one of the four Hogwarts houses, have a wand choose you, and discover exclusive new writing from J.K. Rowling.
We’ll be adding lots of exciting new features over the coming weeks and months, so make sure you return regularly to explore and discover all the changes as Pottermore grows.
The news comes on the heels of a pretty busy week in Harry Potter, with the announcement of author J. K. Rowling's next book project, The Casual Vacancy, and the launch of her revamped official website right here.

I just want to get sorted! I’m so very confused! At LeakyCon last year I was walking around sporting clothing from all the houses. And then the extra bit if I don’t get into Gryffindor!

gem2: There have been a few things said about CoS (eg. the first half of 2012 but that was said a while ago so it might have slipped). It could be reasonably soon depending on how much creating, testing and fixing of the new stuff they have been able to fit in but I doubt it will be this month as I think they will want to wait until the new entrants have had a chance to register, get in and explore and the site isn’t so busy.

How nice, now everyone can finally be a part of it. I’m guessing they’ll space out the second emails so a whole bunch of people dont crash the site.

@LunaLuver, your right, there is a pretty big space between letters. I know some people that got on this morning, but I haven’t got mine yet and I signed up this morning

FINALLY! It took long enough. Could it be that they are finally getting their act together? Now only if they send out the email confirmations in a timely fashion WOULD be the crowning glory. Maybe they can allow us newbies to be a part of the games and all that they had before it went “live”.
