do we need to be a GAP (Gamer Advisory Panel) member to signup for open beta?

Best guess is that you can still think of it as a soft launch.  I think they will continue to gradually add people until the 'official' launch when finally everyone who wants it, has it.  Phil Harrison is on record as saying that despite what Kaz Hirai said about the launch, everyone will get to experience Home before the year is out.

i hope all this real happens because i'm not really enjoyin the games i have now. warhawk- only good for the blutooth headset to me, madden08-thats enuff said , ghost recon- good game i actually play this 1 the most but the ranking setup is stupid. so HOME would be a fresh start in gaming for me.
i write all msg on this forum using my ps3 browser. i can't type long replies & there is no editor so forgive me for any mistakes. cpu crashed. i hate the new msg creator for this forum & now i can't quote ppl.

You forgot one important key phrase "as far as he is concerned". He's not the president of sony man...in the end Kaz will make the call on when the beta is released, I think Phil was trying to play damage control(seeing how he stuck his foot in his mouth and completely down his throat) and once again we'll see another delay. Forget the beta, give me the final product at this point....from what i've heard the beta sucks anyway.

Open beta is pretty much not requiring an invitation, but can be still restricted to a certain amount of users.  Meaning they could post the Home download on the PSN store and once it reaches X amount of user downloads they'll take it off.  Sega did this on Xbox Live with Phantasy Star Universe for a weekend - posted the beta and after a few days took it off, whoever got it was lucky enough to play.  They'll do the same thing here most likely and gradually let more and more in over the months until the perminent release.
