one failed first impression
So the demo went good, and bad.
From five people I showed it, one reacted with "What do I do? Where's the UI?"
Maybe it is a little too simple/obvious after all. Let's see if I get a second impression in that case...
[update] It seems it's kind of like the old joke "There's only 10 kinds of people. Those who get binary and those who don't."
The "Do I Write Like A Pro?" idea seems similar. Some people get the basic idea at once and start playing with the UI. Other's don't. And that's NOTHING to do with how smart or open a person is. It's more of a inclination thing.
And the way it is designed now takes some time and patience - and maybe the right kind of playfullness - to 'get'.
I'm not sure if the right kind of pretext - like some introductory text - would help.
BTW, thanks to these kind people for their comments and sugestions:
