In computer software development, there is a method called prototyping. It involves constructing prototypes or incomplete testing versions of what you intend to have as a final product. The incomplete versions are tested by developers (alpha), then the public (beta) and finally released as official versions of the software or application being developed. Each stage of testing is punctuated by improvements intended to mature the software.

We developed Spoken to be a community of mainly South African bloggers (writers) to share opinions, ideas and perspectives. In the process readers and writers can learn from each other and subject their views to public debate in order to enrich them and help inform each other. We strive to attract quality authors while catering for a diverse audience.
