Beta is a powerful word.

Beta means there will be bugs. The product is not ready, and is certainly not for everyone, but we ship it anyway.

It strips away the need to be perfect, exposes imperfections to early adopters and tinkers. Most people decide to try beta products because they believe in the ideas and promises - what the software will be capable of. Beta connects creators and users. It is only for those who dare - the brave explorers who want to help perfecting the product.

If you find yourself spending a long time trying to make something perfect before sharing it to the world, put a beta tag and ship it. It’s ok. It’s Beta, for now.
