More suggested reading from Om: “Give yourself permission to suck,” by Pamela Slim.
Pamela advocates releasing early versions of just about anything. Sounds all too familiar for me, having spent a good bit of the last couple years signing up for and reviewing the flakey beta versions of web apps. But she extends the “release early and often” ethos to newsletters, podcasts, and any sort of product.
Like most anything, this could be taken too far. Do you find yourself explaining away everyday mishaps as pilot projects? Sorry honey…that souffle was in beta.
