I think it was supposed to start a week after private beta opened. It's been about that long. When does public beta open or has it already?

In about two hours (as of this post). By time you read this, the public beta will have likely already started. Public beta starts 7 days after launch. For reference, you can always track a site's progress in Area 51 (http://area51.stackexchange.com).
