TESLA GOES OPEN SOURCE!

This is not ground breaking proceedure for a company to release patent protection, but for a leader in innovation it sends a strong message. Tesla explains their decision in their blog just recently.

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.

Open source is a term that has gained familiarity regarding technology that has a higher priority on innovation than that of protectionism. I first heard about the concept while studying 3D animation. I heard a story about a disillusioned “inventor/coder” that sold his life work to a company only to find that the product would be misrepresented in an undesirable fashion. He felt so strongly about his convictions that he took the source code and put it on the internet to be used an improved by all who were interest and found that the software advanced by drastic improvements in a very short time frame. Now, that’s passion for you! Isn’t there a saying that, “if you love something, let it go…”?

What do you think Tesla was thinking when they chose such drastic options?

Finding our peak experience?

 

How do we find our peak experiences in life? Hiking in the fresh mountain air and soaking in the unseasonal amount of sunshine is fulfilling for the soul. It strikes a nerve of excitement for nature and a connection with our environment. It reminds me of a book that I just started reading. It explains something that I have experienced a number of times while I’ve been in nature. Whether it is in the heart of the Redwood forest of California, the rolling prairies of the plains of Oklahoma, the mountain tops of Norway or the ruins of lost Roman civilizations. It’s the feeling of appreciation and awe that stirs an awareness of our existence.

“Abraham Maslow called these “peak experiences” since they represent the high moments of life where we joyfully find ourselves captured beyond the confines of the mundane and the ordinary. ” (Tolle, 1999)

Let yourself experience peak experiences! Let you hair out, it’s okay!
What is your most memorable peak experience?
