Before SO launched, this picture was shown as a teaser. This was during the 5-6 weeks it always took Jeff to finish (now upgraded to estimating 2.0 it is 6-8 weeks). – malach Sep 6 '09 at 17:06
    
Some of us already had SO as a homepage when Jeff first announced the site URL. However can anyone remember who hacked the beta site first? Or was that information never revealed? – BinaryMisfit Sep 6 '09 at 17:40

To answer the question regarding the "hacked" beta from podcast 10: first of all we did have a beta site up and very clever hacker listeners figured out the URL for our site - not that it's very difficult to figure out [laughing] - Jeff – BinaryMisfit Sep 7 '09 at 11:49
