Roy Tennant

Thom, this is fascinating, and I think illustrates why it's useful to have a service out in front of potential users early. Only through people banging on it will some problems surface. Your deeper understanding of the application, as well as the changes made to alleviate the discovered problems, makes it a much more robust application.


Very insightful. I've been relying on the xISBN service for WAG the Dog (which is a similarly "use at your own risk", yet "live", service). I agree with Roy that by releasing these technologies into the wild it:

A) Helps work out kinks and scaleability issues
B) Finds alternative uses and unexpected applications for services

Good stuff.
