Perpetual Beta

It’s roughly 4 years since Jason Kottke announced Dropcash, an “easy way to organise a fundraiser”. 4 years later, and it’s still ‘in beta’.
It was one of the first non-Six Apart properties to use the then fledgling TypeKey service, which itself hasn’t really blossomed much beyond Movable Type and TypePad (although OpenID has). And it doesn’t really seem to have changed since launch. The official blog has been silent since Dec 2004.
Despite this, the service has raised over half a million US dollars in the 4 years it has been running. Maybe if some people link to it again, it might get some attention and lose the beta status it has held for so long.
