Closed-source, yes. But why "secretive"? So far we've been totally open
about our design plans - especially with respect to Friendly AI design, of
course, but that's a separate issue - rather than trying to protect ideas,
as a for-profit would probably have to. I'm not saying that trade secrets
are unethical; I respect everyone's right to keep ideas or give them away
as they choose - but why call us secretive?
