Re: IBM wants your ideas so it can sell them back to you!
That is what they are doing here, open sourced stuff. Others can inspect, comment and use.

IBM kicks in free use of their products unless you are developing something that is commercial, and that is a good deal.

Re: Making IoT Accessible
You make a number of very good points.

The community they are encouraging is inclusive, rather than excluding. The IoT markets right now reminds me of smartphones in 2008. The first hardware has come online, but the true killer apps aren't there yet. There is no dominant market presence. It's all up for grabs.

By being hardware agnostic in the effort, IBM is taking a smart position. They want to promote what they can do, and that doesn't depend on any particular chip.

This is such a positive change for IBM in so many ways, that I take a far less pessimistic view of their future than I used to.
