Why they built a seed technology for "open source nanotechnology" instead of iterative building on feed lines?
The iterative build seems to be quite simple:
- Establish healthy community of open feed development. If the seed represent "open source" then it would be logical step. If we are to take analogy from real world than professionals would do it both in their free time as well being paid by company (i.e. company sponsoring such work). I think it was established that access to raw materials is free and the freed access points can be accessed by anybody.
- Duplication of freed (reverse engineering) should be much simpler then developing new technology from scratch - especially much more advanced. Duplication (even with removing the constrains) should be much simpler.
- Once we get to this stage it is possible to start decentralizing the system. As the system is in place it is much more economically feasible
At this stage we have all that seed would offer - but instead of having n-year old plan we have system in place in m years (m < n) so it can provide needs for population.
