All Our Patent Are Belong To You

By Elon Musk, CEO

Yesterday, there was a wall of Tesla patents in the lobby of our Palo Alto headquarters. That is no longer the case. They have been removed, in the spirit of the open source movement, for the advancement of electric vehicle technology.

Tesla Motors was created to accelerate the advent of sustainable transport. If we clear a path to the creation of compelling electric vehicles, but then lay intellectual property landmines behind us to inhibit others, we are acting in a manner contrary to that goal. Tesla will not initiate patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith, wants to use our technology.

FBI ‘could hire hackers on cannabis’ to fight cybercrime

The FBI has reportedly said it is “grappling with the question” of whether to hire cybersecurity experts who use cannabis.

However, its director James Comey has acknowledged that this is complicating its efforts to recruit hacking experts, according to the Wall Street Journal.

It said he made the announcement at a conference in New York.

“I have to hire a great workforce to compete with those cybercriminals, and some of those kids want to smoke weed on the way to the interview,” the newspaper quoted him as saying at the White Collar Crime Institute’s annual meeting.

It added that when one attendee asked how a cannabis-using friend interested in working for the bureau should now act, Mr Comey replied: “He should go ahead and apply.”

My friend Marshall Auerback sent the following insightful comment in response to the Jeff Madrick’s “Inequality Is Not the Problem”, which I distributed on 27 April 2014.

Recall that Jeff argued why the very real problems in the United States associated with concentration of wealth, growing income inequality, and low rates of social/income mobility should not be separated from the larger problem of stimulating overall economic growth.  This is a subtle issue Marshall’s comment helps to illuminate the relationship.

We’re playing around. None of the RSS / curation offerings are satisfactory. As a side note: the President’s Daily Brief (PDB) is Top Secret Limited Distribution and costs roughly 219 million dollars a day and is seen by very few. This daily is free and open to all. Below is a simple Global Reality matrix. The US Government obsesses on the two red dots.

R. BUCKMINSTER FULLER:
The History [and Mystery] of the Universe
A one-man play created by D. W. Jacobs
(first performed in 2000 in San Diego, then San Francisco)

The following excerpts constitute one persons feelings of the play’s wisdom and inspiration that may
warrant pondering:

1. Gravity does not have to think before behaving in the most economical manner.

2. We now have the capability to take care of all humanity at a higher standard of living than we have ever known, but only if the sovereign fences are completely removed.

3. The physical wealth of universe cannot diminish, the metaphysical can only increase.

4. Learning the truth about all things, then the truth about combinations of things, that’s what you want to do.
