Open Source as a Möbius Strip?

Bre Pettis, co-founder of MakerBot Industries, explains the basic principles behind open source hardware in simple terms. Pettis says, that open source is »sort of a ’standing on the shoulders of giants‘ Möbius strip«. In a Möbius Strip you endlessly come from the inner side of a strip to the outer side and vice versa. Is this a good image for the principles of open source? Anyway, nice video:
The Möbius strip is a symbol of infinity, that’s the metaphor here. Makes sense.
