Elon Musk is a monster. An innovative genius.

Who? Who in the tech/innovative industry would surrender their “competitive advantage” for the “greater good”? Especially with the threat of that kind of information finding its way into the eyes of companies(and countries) who would/can do it cheaper/possibly better (China).  Companies get sued for billions of dollars for things like this. (See Samsung and Apple). Its like an open invitation fort tech companies to “challenge” Tesla and even Elon Musk himself or maybe even help him finish the journey that he is already on. From a tech stand point, open sharing of information inspires growth and  innovation. From a business standpoint, I’m sure there are people who have money in Tesla that are squirmy from this news.

From the man himself:

He may have started something very interesting …or may have thrown away a lot of money.
