Here it is! The app our team has been working hard to prepare is ready for a closed beta of about 10,000 users. If you want to snag a spot, then get to it! http://cooking.nytimes.com/
Today was spent talking with the offshore team that will take over manual testing. They had some insightful questions about the app, proof of just how helpful it is to have a fresh set of eyes.
I cleared out the remaining serious bugs, verifying that everything was indeed working. In between there were congratulatory speeches, a froyo expedition, and discussions of where to go next.
Today is a good day.
