I'm fascinated that the Gates foundation convinced the Oxford vaccine developers to not go open-source with their vaccine. In an interview Bill said it was in order to maintain the quality of vaccines being distributed. So that any old company couldn't botch together a cut-price distribution scheme.
AstraZeneca are producing the vaccine on a non-profit basis, paid for by the Gates foundation.
I don't think Bill is being deliberately nefarious or cunning here. I think he's well meaning and just acting on his personal beliefs and ideology.
It's just that his actions happen to determine the health and lives of billions of people.
That in and of itself should be concerning.
@ChrisWere Open source here meaning...?
@ChrisWere indeed it should be, but turns out the overwhelming majority of bipeds on the planet doesn't care.
