Minor update: the MoMB just got a fantastic visual search widget (powered by Quintura.) Just enter a search term or click on a popular term in the cloud and a search cloud of related terms is generated automagically.





Check it out here. It’s a nice way to intuitively dive into the textual subconsciousness of the MoMB.

Two years and 4 days ago the MoMB was born.

Coincidentally I’ve also just added the 4000th beta (the super sharp Feedor)

If you like statistics:

4003 sites have been added (average of 5.45 per day)

  • 3136 in public beta
  • 194 in alpha
  • 673 in private beta, by invitation, or stealth mode

Of those only 58 (1.44%) went out of business and 226 (5.65%) went out of beta (I might have missed a few.)

It has been another interesting year, tons of apps I can’t imagine living without now – if you’ve been hanging in here for a while I hope you’ve been discovering some cool sites too. A big thanks to all who have contributed links, feedback, and suggestions.

It doesn’t seem like the beta-phenomenon is cooling down soon, so stay tuned.

There is a brand new Twitter account for the MoMB which automagically gets populated by the fabulous twitterfeed. If you subscribe, you won’t miss a beta never ever again:

The other account is still around, but I’m a lousy twitterer at best …

About a year ago flickr dropped the beta tag and went into gamma.

Recently flickr also dropped the gamma tag and now says it loves you.

Disruptive times.
