Telsa took its vehicles open source- announced June 25th. Open source is not a donation economy. As Steele said it will “conquer the 1%.” Let the Maidsafe ecosystem be completely open access and noise free.
This could be off topic but Maidsafe itself is open source. It begs for an open systems movement type market vice the locked up enclosed systems that are called 'free markets."
I love Tesla’s aggressive way taking on its challenges. Its got a sister company that is putting its batteries into businesses and covering their roof tops with solar and pitching it as zero cost risk hardening. If I’ve understood correctly that’s also part of the their consumer cut the cord approach. Cells on the roof and batteries in the home so you can charge the car when you get home. They have the free supercharging solar powered stations they are putting in 98 in the US so far and pushing big numbers around the globe. They just went open with their patents and did so for the right reasons with the right attitude. They are doing their Giga factories to drive down the cost of their batteries by 30% in the first year. Their sales are way up, ratings through the roof.
Funny, kind of shows that with the right immigrant American experience its possible to do something amazing even in a built market like the American auto market- of course the company is more than Musk, includes a lot more immigrant American or just immigrant experience. Not good to bet against people who are willing to immigrate and really crash through barriers. Space X also amazing. Cosmopolitans all. Romney will be remembered for calling Tesla a loser.
I want them do a solar blanket that can work like a car tarp. Probably an expensive item but some people park their cars in enclosed lots by day. I’d also like them to do solar paint. And while they are at it let them put in the that beautiful little cut-the-cord mesh box optimized for MaidSafe.
