The article doesn't state that we are - just that we are suited to it.

They cite a single example, with nothing to back that up. None of the large tech firms appear to do it - see Bing, Siri etc - but they would likely not benefit from out "isolation".

Personally, it depends on what they are "guinea pigging".

If it is a web service, who cares.

If it is something that you would expect to be around for 20 years that they then back out from - not keen.

But noone is forcing you to engage with these services or products. As always, caveat emptor.

I am happy for new and interesting things to try themselves out here - I like cool new stuff.

The concept of our "isolation" in 2015 is a bit of a joke - social media killed that off long ago. If a tech company launched a product and it was awful, the world would know about it.

"Firms preparing to launch new products need to discover ... whether their servers can support lots of users at the same time."  Surely they'd do that where there are lots of users then, because launching an app here, where only a small number of people will probably run it and half the services you want to support probably don't exist, won't tell you what it's going to be like once you release it in the US, or Europe where you have language considerations as well as a population 180 times the size of ours.
