“Don’t worry, be crappy. Revolutionary means you ship and then test… Lots of things made the first Mac in 1984 a piece of crap – but it was a revolutionary piece of crap.” ~ Guy KawasakiÂ Â
I think it is a myth that a new product that will solve problems or fill a need (especially a technology product) must be perfect before you launch it. Modern experience is showing that may not be true – lots of great products were buggy at first, incomplete when first launced: MySpace.com, Google, Xbox 360, etc. The key is to launch but then improve based on user-feedback.
