ACM Interactions: Open for Business – The Business of Betas

Starting in the latest issue of ACM Interactions, a magazine focused on practical HCI & Usability in high-tech, I will be writing a column called “Open for Business”.
The first article was published this month, and talks about “The Business of Betas”. If you’re an ACM member, you can read the article online here:

Coincidentally, there was another article on the subject posted at TechCrunch:

I can’t underscore the importance of a planned and organized beta release for software products. Adobe Labs is a good example of how this can be done well, and Flash / Flash Lite are great technologies for prototyping and beta testing interface ideas for applications, the web, and mobile.
