Beta Byte
An Ongoing Project with Alex Gennette

Beta Byte is a community driven product review website. Beta Byte relies on its community to review new technology and beta test upcoming technology.

The site gives the opportunity to become a amateur beta tester to its users. Users can earn karma points for quality reviews and insightful comments. Once they are at a certain level they can opt in to beta test new technology. This in turn gains early hype for an upcoming product and helps the company promote their product.

Beta Byte provides reviews and hype for products based on crowd sourced micro-blogging. These micro blogs are called Bytes.
