Thanks for your post, Laurent! I believe that Biz's product is a faster way to get answers for basic questions vs. Google search, given the following: "...the key to Jelly’s success: it relies on users to learn how to ask the right questions, not just give the right answers." ~Lauren Hockenson.
There is a market eager for the semantic web to firm up, for search to move from indirect AI, to strong AI such that it can at least answer basic human questions effectively. Biz would reach part of that market just by releasing Jelly through the adoption cycles.
The intention behind the platform is strong enough, and being clearly messaged enough by Biz, such that users over the adoption cycles will probably learn one of the secrets to life sooner than later: asking the right questions is a laudable, and valuable skill.
Another smart move on Biz's part (and twitter): It's good timing with twitter's Nearby tweets timeline for mobile. One of the goals of social is to physically meet our engagers, and influencers (potential friends, colleagues, etc.). So, the combination of Nearby tweets, and Jelly could prove to be a great pairing. Jelly could be the jam, for a market segment of twitter's peanut butter: working together like a social glue sandwiched between virtual, and physical worlds.
Google will eventually reach the strong AI threshold, and return faster answers. Perhaps, Jelly's fun factor will allow it to co-exist in Google's market even so?

Great concept, we all prefer answers from people we know (even if we don't really know them..). The UI on the website is very confusing though. Would be interesting to see how it evolves
