βeta  is the second letter of the Greek alphabet and my second album.
(Like the names of most other Greek letters, the name of beta was adopted from the acrophonic name of the corresponding letter in Phoenician, which was the common Semitic word *bayt (‘house’). )

The beta release falls somewhere along the home stretch of the software development cycle. First comes the pre-alpha stage, involving actual feature development and overall coding. Once the software is compiled and ready for in-house testing it’s in the alpha stage. Only after in-house testing is complete, does the software move into the beta release stage; eventually reaching the third and final stage of becoming a stable release.
There are four categories of these brainwaves, ranging from the most activity to the least activity. When the brain is aroused and actively engaged in mental activities, it generates beta waves. These beta waves are of relatively low amplitude, and are the fastest of the four different brainwaves. The frequency of beta waves ranges from 15 to 40 cycles a second. Beta waves are characteristics of a strongly engaged mind. A person in active conversation would be in beta. A debater would be in high beta. A person making a speech, or a teacher, or a talk show host would all be in beta when they are engaged in their work.

The next brainwave category in order of frequency is alpha. Where beta represented arousal, alpha represents non-arousal.

beta wave,
one of several types of brain waves, characterized by relatively low voltage and a frequency of more than 13 Hz. Beta waves are the “busy waves” of the brain, recorded by electroencephalograph from the frontal and the central areas of the cerebrum when the patient is awake and alert with eyes open. Also called beta rhythm.
