some guy i know designed a new transport for internet communications,
rather than sell the idea he gave to the internet community for free in an open manner to benifit every one who uses the net
some things are better owned by the entire community than by one person,
their gift should lower the cost of internet access and remove "capps" on data amounts that can be consumed,
they asked that any profits go to internet infrastructure expansion.
this gift will lead to low cost robotic surgery done from "remote" locations removing the need for expensive travel and accommodation.
while the idea was given freely it was aimed at the open source comunity to allow the whole comunity to develop uses free from expensive "licencing"
this will enable many small open source project to thrive and create jobs, rather than just make one man rich.
this was done in the spirit of sir Tim Burners Lee, the father of the world wide web and DNS server network,
a man who gave his innovation to the world and created the greatest gift to the world,
the free and open world wide web.
open source created the web and will sustain it
