The death of beta
After writing about my first experience with the new Yahoo GO TV people keep reminding me about the fact that this is beta software. At some point back in time a "beta version" of a software package was a complete version, but with possibilities for bugs and maybe some minor functions missing.
This whole Web 2.0 thing has destroyed the "beta" state completely. "Beta" means nothing as long as the world's most successful photo sharing site - Flickr is still in "beta" after years of existence and the world's best web based mail - Gmail is also in "beta".
