I ran into some major glitches for the first time yesterday as Joost expanded its beta to unlimited invites. Turns out Liz and Om had problems, too, as has Wired.com‘s Adario Strange, although theirs seem longer lasting than mine — which have yet to reoccur. (Unless you count being stuck with what seems like the same show every time I open the program.) On another front, though, I still don’t see the new content that was supposed to launch Thursday. Oh, well, still a few hours to go.
One thing to remember about hype: it can work for you, as Joost has proven, — and it can cut against you when delivery doesn’t meet expectations.
