    I confess, I didn't put any money into the grid, so I don't really have any emotional connection with it; no reason to be angry, or indeed no reason to be happy that sites are beginning to pop up (no matter what they may look like). I've followed their story, seen the promos, read the medium posts, and as an outsider and I'm actually excited that they have produced a product that, to some extent (whatever you feel that maybe), actually produces websites via AI.

    I'm pretty sure this isn't the final product, and this will be built upon. Things may not look visually great, but they have produced a product.

    It may be that this technology could be the base of other things in the future; for instance helping dyslexic or autistic users consume more content much more easily than is possible now. I/we just don't know.

    The fact that the team has produced AI that can do this is a move forward and a move into the unknown.

      To produce a poor MVP is not a reason to be extremely happy either... Specially if we consider how much they are charging, what they are promising and what they've delivered so far...

      If they want to experiment they shouldn't charge for it, or sell it as a finished product...

        Absolutely; as I said, I'm talking from an outsiders point of view with no vested interest. This may be a different one to yours

          I don't have any connection with "the grid" either, I don't know why you assume that...

          Anyway I just don't understand the reason you are "excited" about it. There are plenty of good options out there that aren't a scam... (Just a few examples: Semplice, Squarespace, cargocollective, any good WP theme...)

          But hey if you are so excited about it spend some money on it and let us know how it evolves :)

        An MVP would usually indicate something that would be viable in the market (in order to achieve a level of success). I would argue that this is not an MVP it's a rushed release or even worse someone's idea that had no basis in reality in the first place (AKA a lie).
