Work in Progress - The Perpetual Beta

Why is "Bring Back the Beta" in the Logo such an important feature in Google's List of Lab Options

"We're often asked why so many Google applications seem to be perpetually in beta. For example, Gmail has worn the beta tag more than five years. We realize this situation puzzles some people, particularly those who subscribe to the traditional definition of "beta" software as not being yet ready for prime time."

Precisely for the reason that any "Enterprise" is just like Star Trek.... an exploration, and experiment to try new things, and boldly go where no (business)man has gone before...
It gives an organisation The E.& O E Clause to their products/services/solutions - 
The  Freedom &  Fearlessness to Fail 

We all make mistakes, All That Google has to do is remember the
Lessons Learnt from the Nexus One & Google Wave and it will continue to grow...

Are YOU allowed to Fail?
