Yes - deeply disappointing. What is it about outfits like Flickr and Google (who you rightly lambast for their awful Google books launch)? My guess is that it's the age old problem of the marketing/sales people living on a different planet to the engineers. (I'm neither, so am allowed to say this.) The marketing types reason for living is to tell the world about stuff before it's ready. They don't know why they do this, they just do. Dilbert is, of course, always encountering this problem, not to mention the pointy haired boss.

Google and Flickr need to learn from the Japanese. All senior people in Japanese engineering companies (including their marketing people) are engineers. Plus, there's no such thing as an 'accountant' in Japan. Nuff said?
