Thanks for sharing this - great read.

I think the telling part of this story, aside from the general lack of originality of the concept, lies in the comment about the UI being designed by an engineer. Engineers generally assume knowledge on the part of users that simply doesn't exist in the real world, particularly in the consumer world.
Also I don't really see a revenue model mentioned- I'm assuming subs. That requires marketing and sales, neither of which are mentioned.
I would encourage any engineers planning a business to reread Marcelo's post with these comments in mind.

Great post, i've already subscribed to your feed.
