What'd you learn from the beta? How many users were involved?

@dshan during the open beta, we served >400k videos to over 65k uniques. A lot of feature requests rolled in as a result. (which is great news!) The most requested feature was for a bookmarking function, where users could build up a personal library of videos they're interested in. This request was combined with another request for a like button or upvote/downvote system. I added a 'star' button that (hopefully) covers the two use cases, all starred videos are private and will appear under the user's profile. Stars also contribute to video rankings. Also, people wanted a way to browse all the videos in a particular category/topic instead of being forced to play them all via the player, which I can understand can get annoying. This release definitely has a lot more emphasis on the discovery of awesome content, without taking away too much from the centrepiece of the site; the brain pump player.

@omaridau Very cool. I like the slow iteration towards actions and their effects.

Great execution. Are you planning something audio-only like e.g. a podcast? Would be handy, if you're on the road for instance.

@oemerax we're going to experiment with a few different formats (other than video) in the coming weeks. Audio will definitely be an interesting one. What kind of audio content would you, personally, be interested in? (in terms of topics/categories)
