That’s why I’m a scientist and not a businessman. Scientists want their discoveries to help everyone. Businessmen want to enrich themselves.

Knowledge is my unique asset, there would be no way I would just reveal what I worked so hard for.


The joy is in being the first to know something, not being the only one to know.

The stuff that truly makes me unique I would not even sell to a competitor.


The stuff that truly makes us unique can't be described in words. It's not something that can be sold.

This is a silly comparison. Yes, you’ll happily share your discovery, as a publication. Once the discovery is made and published you’ve made your “currency” from it and you’re on to the next thing. It’s completely different to someone running a business.

Thomas Jefferson would disagree with you

Sorry, I don’t understand that at all.

Drifting into "$$$/heaven/camel/needle" territory.

Awkward!
