    Interesting and I admire him but some off the figures don't add up from what I could see. If he was doing everything from scratch that would be different.

    Arguably arrogant to think you can outdo industry on something like a tractor, but I like it.

    Sounds very intriguing
    Like 1960s commune with geeks phd !!

    Fascinating idea kind of like Linux for the manufacturing business

    You might be interested in Jeremy Rifkin
    Who talks a lot about
    Getting off FF using Local renewable
    Geothermal solar wind biomass
    "The sun shines all over the wind blows in every corner of the world
    And directly under our feet is geothermal"
    Then collaborating using Distribted smart grid to distribute
    Those electrons amongst the community

    Rather than monster solar farms in Arizona
    That is a top down utility to consumer model
    Ideally many of us are producers
