So in the long term, how exactly will this be different from http://www.topcoder.com/ ?

Just wondering... I signed up already anyway.

Is it just me or is the topcoder website confusing? I've never really managed to find what I want to whenever I go there (pretty much the exact opposite experience to the submitted site which drops you immediately into coding)

Good question. Top Coder is more of a crowd-sourced approach to solving a problem, where as we're focused on building an interactive community.

Sorry, you are wrong. Check the algorithm section. It is all about competitions for developers.

Yes they use competition, but its not about that, its the context and how it's used that's important. It's a fundamentally different approach, just wait for our next step...
