Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

They allow read only access to the site because the point behind having a private beta is so that people who are committed to the site can begin to shape it in it's early days.

Being able to read the data cannot interfere with that process.

Check out StackMobile. You can view the data on every one of the sites, private or not.
