Ha! I have always heard it as:
Keep It Simple Stupid
Either way, I love it!
For general feedback on early alphas and betas, it is fair to say that the degree of importance we place on the feedback is directly proportional to the amount of investment (time, resources, etc) customers\partners have made in that technology. We typically have a small handful of customers and partners that betting big with us very early… there feedback maters a lot to us, because we really want them to be successful. Notice these folks don’t have to be big players in their space, quite the opposite sometimes. In V1, we worked with some compiler vendors very early on and took tons of feedback from them for exactly this reason. Ditto with ASP.NET, there are a small number of websites that did “go-live” on our beta bits – you better believe we listen closely to them. The cycle continues now with Longhorn.
But specific to blogs, it is a bit of a different story… By the nature of the technology, the pedigree of the commentors on my blog is much less important than the quality of their comments. But people do build up credibility over time… For example Chris Brumme and I have talked about a few of the frequent posters to our blogs and have found a number in common that have earned a fair amount of respect… But there can easily be anyone that is demonstrating insight and general “smarts” in their space… you don’t have to be a company betting big on our latest technology to be heard.
