As you probably imagine, I love your take on this idea and the fact that you are actually doing some early prototyping. What are the initial barriers to acceptance or A-HAs you've come across as you've started?

Thanks so much for the feedback. An initial barrier is working wth a team of 1 so I would love collaborators if you are interested! The feedback I got with the prototype was small sampling so a
barrier I have encountered thus far is getting enough initial data to make a strong value prop. I suppose that is just a beginning project problem.
