Tear down

Wired has an article on how car manufactures routinely tear down the cars of their competition for the insights on manufacturing, costs, etc they can obtain from the carcas.

Reminds me of the process advocates of particular identity systems engage in when looking at the 'competition'.

What is promising is that, more and more, the analyses that we perform, and the conversations we have, include attempts at understanding how the different systems might be compatible.

I don't think GM and Toyota spend much time on worrying about the "auto metasystem" and how their cars might interoperate.
