Today I received more information about the new Webmaster Portal Beta coming soon:
Live Search Webmaster Portal Beta
Thank you for filling out the survey for the Live Search Webmaster Portal Beta program!
In order to provide the highest level of service to our Beta Partners, we have started off the beta program with our first group of participants. As the program is rolled out in phases, we will incrementally increase the number of participants until all applicants have been accepted by late November. The information you provided us thru the registration survey will help us determine when the right timeframe is to bring you into the beta program and ensure that our participants represent the widest range of industries and company sizes.

I will have to be honest, I am ready to get this underway and see what offerings they will be bringing to fellow webmasters.
