Elon Musk’s views on free speech on Twitter

Elon Musk’s views on free speech on Twitter

Trust should be increased on Twitter as a public platform.

  • Twitter should be an inclusive arena for free speech. Free speech should only abide by the law.
  • We should be reluctant to delete tweets, “If in doubt, let the speech exist.”
  • There should be no behind the scenes manipulation. Not algorithmically nor manually.
  • Timeouts are better than permanent bans.
  • The Twitter algorithm should be open source and available online for people to inspect and highlight issues and suggest changes freely.

Tesla going private. Funding secured

Tesla going private. Funding secured

On the question is funding was really secured, Elon Musk stated that “the funding was indeed secured”. However, the SEC San Francisco office still pursued an active public investigation.

The banks then warned Elon that if he didn’t settle with the SEC, they would cease to provide working capital and Tesla would go bankrupt immediately. The result was that Elon was forced to admit that he lied, even though it was false, to save Tesla's life. “I was forced to concede to the SEC, unlawfully, those bastards.”

Elon Musks worst business decision ever

The worst business decision ever was not to start Tesla with just JB Straubel, the visionary co-founder.

Before Elon invested, Tesla was just a shell company with no employees and no intellectual property. Martin Everhard created a false narrative that he created the company.

The Tesla Model 3 challenges

The Tesla Model 3 challenges

Tesla almost went bankrupt in its pursuit to automate manufacturing and achieve volume production. The problem wasn't that they overestimated how much they could automate. Instead, they had issues with almost every aspect of the Model 3 production line, from cells to packs to motors to final assembly.

Tesla is the first car startup since the 1920s that reached production without going bankrupt. Elon lived in the factories for three years. He slept on the floor so that the team who was going through a hard time could see that he didn't just sit in his ivory tower. He was in it with them.

Scale is at the heart of Elon's master plan

Elon states that to accelerate the advent of sustainable energy, there must be scale. "We've got to transition a vast economy that is currently overly dependent on fossil fuels to a sustainable energy economy."

Energy must be sustainably generated with wind, solar, hydro, geothermal and nuclear. Then stationary storage batteries are needed since solar and wind are intermittent. This is a task for humanity, not just for Tesla, and sooner is better for the environment.

Elon and Asperger's syndrome

Elon and Asperger's syndrome

Social cues for Elon that he has Asperger's syndrome were not so intuitive. He was very bookish. He took everything literally. As a result, he was frequently bullied and had a difficult childhood.

Elon consumed many books and movies, which helped him in time to understand things that most people intuitively understand.

Looking forward to the future

Elon states that “we should be optimistic about the future and fight to make that optimistic future happen.”

The future cannot just be about one miserable thing after another, solving one sad problem after another. There have to be things that get you excited and want to make you live. These things are important, and we should have more of them.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
