Development roadmaps and releases are also not trivial issues when trying to manage customer satisfaction. On more than one occassion I've seen posts on the forum suggesting that beta program releases were too frequent and required greater internal testing before release. These feedbacks were for incremental desktop client developments.
Now, it has been confirmed by the team that the mobile clients are being developed. This is a completely new platform type with two operating systems, engineering a complex architecture of information management whilst ensuring a high quality of user satisfaction meeting needs and maintaining parity with 15 years of prior user experience. If the developers released the product without critical capability just to satisfy our joy of novelty (myself as guilty as anyone!) some indignant complaints would have emerged but more importantly, the impact of less than satisfactory first user experience would have been tainted. As the mobile platforms directly open TheBrain to orders of magnitude new customers, this is a process that has to be managed with the utmost care. In my view, they're getting it right. Focussing on the key development process rather than satisfying our salivating chops with premature updates. This is no mere update but a major strategic development for the knowledge ecosystem we love. I recommend we excercise restraint, patience and support for the intense work that is going on rght now. The longer they take to get it right, the better it is for the product, the community and the future developments of TheBrain. In the meantime, anyone looking to expand their Braining and make a vocation of it can apply to join the Stellarbrain global Brain consulting thinktank as an associate ( http://forums.thebrain.com/post/show_single_post?pid=1277192768&postcount=4).
