Fiercely Overpriced

An idea suggested on 2022-07-14 that all inventions should be fiercely overpriced.

To attain FIRE, we have previously explored that Software as a Service would be one way to go. However, good engineering and a good product are very different. One major roadblock would be the lack of expertise in payment infra. What if we start from a simple yet overpriced Software as a Service product to test how to get monetized? The purpose is not to generate revenue by itself but to examine and get enough data out on how the real-world Software as a Service FIRE will work out.

Examples. A book recommendation web app but you need to pay to use it. Book Metadata as a Service could also be one example.
