What would you do if you came up with an idea that could create more than 4 million new hightech jobs, reduce the amount of electricity used by computers, make systems easier to use, reduce the amount of waste thrown into landfills, supply gratis wireless networking for people, and create a huge grid of free or “almost free” supercomputing for university and business projects needing huge amounts of CPU power, doing all of this with private sector money in a way that would pay for itself and be self-sustaining?
At this time of massive unemployment and governments straining to be solvent, would you keep this idea to yourself in hopes of making money, or would you give it away?
