Everything We Learned About the Bitcoin Mining Council
"In december elon musk. Michael sailor started tweeting back and forth a bit. Bitcoin were already in the modality of companies. Adding bitcoin to their treasury and sailor had already emerged as one of the top evangelists. Of course this got tongues wagging at the end of january. Ilan changed his profile to read bitcoin and tweeted. In retrospect it was inevitable in february tesla announced that it had purchased one point five billion dollars in bitcoin and that it would start to accept bitcoin for payment for vehicles. Bitcoin cheer and our bags. Rejoice as we're rocketed up the next leg of the bull run but it wouldn't be a good story without a dramatic arc. Now would it almost immediately. We saw the downsides of ilan's involvement to go right along with the upside of price. Those downsides included one the alignment with an unpredictable twitter user. More likely to show those than to do. Anything that bolstered bitcoin and to the scorn and condemnation of the legions out there who dislike elon that second category includes many who profess to care about the environment who basically view tesla or ilan himself as a great green washer. In retrospect it's pretty clear that tesla's involvement did more to ratchet up a focus on bitcoin's footprint than to alleviate concerns about it by the end of april a new concern tesla had sold ten percent of its. Bitcoin alon profess that it was only to demonstrate the liquidity of the asset to stakeholders. But it was still jarring by a month later things had gone really sour alon announced that tesla was pausing sales of bitcoin due to environmental concerns w. f. the collective cry rang out. Do this guy seriously. Just learn about the environmental footprint of bitcoin. of course not what's far more likely and commonly accepted. Is that behind the scenes. There were serious pressures pushing tesla any lana on the bitcoin. Question for example. Es focused etf that list tesla who because of bitcoin
Fresh update on "musk" discussed on Leon La Grey Podcast
"Let me just get an up so outweigh begin. A brand new brand new podcast. Which obviously of course. I will release this podcast up on youtube iden releases podcasts. On other Mp three audio Streaming services of your choice so but yeah so go ahead and subscribe to whatever you're you're subscribe to make sure to Listen to me wherever you are so too so tonight. I wanna go ahead and i talk about Cryptocurrencies which i love to talk about. The markets where is crypto currency is going right now too so before we get into windows. Eleven topic now cryptocurrencies. Right now. it is very much on the bearish move. It's been pretty much going sideways. So i know the other day about two a day or two ago i know Bitcoin did jumped forty k. For the first time in a in the past two over the past two weeks and so what had happened Of course. I know. I can't really trust what's going on with ilana anymore. With gosh i have to say though. I've been very very disappointed with with eat with elon. Musk and to me the whole thing. What he's doing on. Twitter is pretty much manipulation of the crop of cryptocurrencies. Especially what he's trying to do and he's not stupid e Really is not stupid. i think What he he was doing was honestly a very big mistake. Taking off bitcoin out of their payment system. Over on tesla right adult. The thing about it is like i don't know exactly how many people use bitcoin To pay for tesla's so i don't know and for me i've talked about this. My last episode was that i think the problem about this. The he was doing was he was being pressured to do to do what he was supposed to do. Right and especially. He probably got pressured by people within his company that take bitcoin. Or who knows what happened by. If you have not done it ill still be at as high as right now too. So yeah it would have been still high and i honestly don't know what's going on because for me. I obviously can see two things. He's just a trying to talk. Bitcoin so the Bitcoin can go lower or he's just being a massive troll. Either way i have no idea where where he wants to go through with Plenty bitcoin by know that the favorability of elon musk's very very low right now too and i just can't i. Here's the thing i for me. I kind of liked him for a while. Oh you know. He's probably a savvy dude and he wants to bring people people that Bitcoin and use bitcoin so he people can spend on the tesla cars. Which i have paid probably ill be a big seller for A tesla more tesla's will be sold going through Bitcoin but now where i see this right there is i think he was just being pressured. I mean By these people around him and taking bitcoin off. I don't know industrial speculation. i can't say what what would have happened if elon. Musk would have kept bitcoin now. However gained back onto the topic was there was an interview ably by and Cnbc.
Motor Trend Reviews Plaid Model S, and and New Battery Details
"Everybody here and stay. We're talking about the first journalist reviews of the new plan model. we've also got an update on the battery capacity. We'll talk about some details behind that we've got an update from dan is on tesla's stock an update on gigabyte lynn news on tussles referral program. And an interesting tweet from elon. Musk that has caused a lot of speculation. Also quick the stock tussle today finishing up about two percent to six hundred and sixteen dollars sixty cents. That compared to the nasdaq also. Strong day up nine tenths of a percent are. Let's start off here with the initial reviews of the model s. so we have one for motor trend. We have one from automotive journalist. Jason kameda whenever tesla has a new vehicle. I always look forward to these. It's kind of a nice time to celebrate what tesla has done with that new vehicle and unlike what we see business news wise from cnbc or reuters. This is automotive new. So the writing is different style. there's a lot of primitives. Nice compliments towards tesla and sometimes some really beautiful writing which again you tend not to see too much in business. News look at trends review here first. So of course. The question that everyone has undermined around this vehicle is can't actually do zero to sixty in under two seconds motor trends answer. Yes but with some stipulation so they actually spent kind of the i. I don't know half or third of this article talking about the requirements that they had for their sixty test run which i think unfortunately it detracts a little bit from their main takeaways. Which of course. We'll talk about as well but they been a fair amount of time talking about how Wanted them to run on a specific track with specific tests conditions. One of those conditions being that the drag strip needed to be prepared with hd which motor trend says as a quote thick black resin that allows cars to accelerate quicker than is possible on normal roads and quote framed that way it does look a little bit manipulative or suspect. But it's not like the hd is common this is a substance that most drag strips are using and using in competition so this is not so unusual thing in quarter mile races. It's just not how motor trend. Test their cars so they wanted to make sure that that part was clear so understanding that they write quote. The plaid model s zips down the quarter mile in a staggeringly quick. Nine point. two five seconds up one hundred fifty two point six miles per hour.
Blockchain: What Is It Good For?
"Thanks the perfect storm of slain. You saw big marketing budgets and elon musk's tweets blockchain has been hyped beyond belief. And it's also been made more complicated than it leads to be. More i could up angolan go. My name's ingram go. I'm senior vice. President and chief technology officer for a special intelligence at hewlett packard enterprise. So first question. What exactly is a blockchain. Let's start with a public blockchain first. Let's use an example of a analogy of a of a ring binder. You've got this notebook with many blank pages bound by a ring ring binder on page one the record number of transactions. You know. maybe. Jim pays john two bitcoins and sarah pays jim ten bitcoins and so on and so on then on the next page You have the same again. Set of transactions being written down on it and the knicks page and then expansion so on so if if you imagine each page is a block and all the pages of bound by the ring bind up being the chain. You actually have a a blockchain there right. So that's what blockchain is except for the fact that in a public blockchain this ledger or this record. Write this chain of pages. Chain of blocks is digital and is distributed to everyone publicly equally publicly with no central custodian. Why you want to use a blockchain. There are two major reasons. Why you want us a blockchain right first and foremost this when you wanna keep record of an entire sequence of transactions especially if you want to go all the way to genesis the beginning and secondly you won that record to be transparent that is you want the decentralize it by distributing copies of the same sequence records to everyone equally with no central custodian
Tesla Rumors: Model Y, China, Suppliers Plus Plaid Updates
"Everybody rob our here. Welcome back to tesla daily. Hope everybody had a great weekend. We are now back to the normal format and today. We're going to be discussing some news.

Some rumors some clarifications to make i is an update from a chinese tech supplier name to opo they supply in addition to tesla. Major automakers like volkswagen gm via chrysler. Bmw et cetera. And i believe this. Update that i i saw shared out on twitter by rafer tesla was an update from an investor. Call and it looks to me like in a question and answer portion of the call. Tessa was brought up. Or at least. I think that is the inference from context clues and unfortunately this is translated. I don't have a really good insight into the context provided but they are referred to here as company anyway. The translated question reads quote. There are many negative news about company. A in the market recently. How about the company's order situation and quote with translated answer reading quote the company strictly abides by the customer's confidentiality requirements. It is inconvenient to disclose. Please understand what i want to say is in the process of cooperating with customers. We deeply realized that all things done by company or correct including product positioning. Rnd manufacturing supplier management quality marketing etc are all very correct other cars. There is a gap of at least five years between companies at noon. We saw two hundred and forty percent increase in sales of company in europe and may rapid growth. The emergence and growth of new species will have problems of this kind which are also short lived. We can't just look at the appearance. We are very optimistic. And the current orders are normal and
The Tesla Model S Has Gone Plaid
"So tesla unveiled the model plaid. Addition what are you getting for that Very bargain-basement one hundred thirty one thousand dollar price. This incredibly affordable tesla is basically. What musk is trying to do is say that these are the best car. That's kind of what they've always been trying to do what they really want to do with this flat dishes show that they can be the quickest fast cars while so what we've got here is a super duper edition of the model s. with three electric motors allowed to go from the to sixty in sierra under two seconds. Although there's a big asterisk which get into minute cover the quarter mile in about nine point. Two seconds three hundred ninety miles of range at top speed around two hundred miles an hour so definitely the speed is the main talking point. But they've also made some other improve on the interior and everything else to well. Wanna get into all that but before we get to details of the car at the ask. Plaid edition is that that is baseball. Reference yes yeah. We've definitely seen a number of space while references over the years It remains to be seen exactly where we're gonna go to from here but yes we have gone. Plaid tesla had promised to plaid plus edition. That was also supposed to launch this week But musk actually just went ahead and cancelled that. He said they don't actually need that anymore. But i'm a little bit skeptical then

"musk" Discussed on Reset
"And down. This is recode's ronnie. Mola she been reading lot of tweets from elon. Musk and has been paying attention to how it's been moving markets running and truly blessed. Hi adam so go back to that for twenty tweet from twenty eighteen. Tell me a little bit more about the trouble. Daddy lennon too. So the brought must to court Basically because they're saying this is true you didn't have funding secured you misled. Investors sent the stock price up. You know it was nowhere near four twenty at the time. So they ended up settling out of court. He'd have to admit any wrongdoing. But he lost his chairmanship tesla. And musk find a total of twenty million dollars each and he was supposed to run any like market-moving tweets by the company's lawyers kind of the settlement was to sort of get a hold of of this wild twitter. And we've been seeing the tweets alana's sort of famous for being wild on twitter but recently we learned that you didn't really follow the judge's orders. In the case of running his tweets by lawyer right right even after paying forty million dollars was against chairmanship turns out based on this correspondence that the wall street journal through a request that he not running tweets by his lawyers. And the sec's upset that he's not actually following the agreement in the settlement so one of the tweets was about solar reproduction and the other one was him saying that the the stock was too high which actually sent the stock down about ten percent to be clear you on. Musk is still the. Ceo of tesla. Right he is still the. Ceo tesla in a ceo saying that your company's stock prices too high. Seems like a bad idea. Yeah i mean. He just has such an effect on the stock price. And it's like so obvious. Every time he sends a tweet you can chart out. You know how much he sends the tesla's stock upper down. Has anything happened to. Egon tweets by the sec added. The short answer is no There's a lot of back and forth between the sec. And his lawyers lawyers are saying he doesn't really need to run those tweets by them because their opinion Sec tried to hold him in contempt of court for an earlier tweet but the judge was like you guys deal with this and they did by saying okay. Employers have to go re tweets but only when they have to do with production refinances. But that doesn't seem to have stopped him here. I mean sec's only recourse. Would be to try to go back to a federal judge. See if the hold him in contempt or relitigate this whole thing you know get rid of the settlement and try to try to get him in trouble for that original for twenty tweet. So that's sort of one issue with tweets where the government can't get involved but lately we've been seeing. ilan moved. The price of bitcoin crypto currencies. What's happening there. Yeah he he's like not he's not an upper of to move the prices tesla. He's also now tweeting. A lot about cryptocurrencies in particular point and bitcoin. And every time he does so he sends the stock up or down in case of bitcoin. He's been tweeting a lot about the environmental impacts of it. He saying that they're no longer accepting bitcoin as payments every time he doesn't mean like that The price of bitcoin goes down. There's also been tweeting. Positively about those point. Sending the price does point up saying that he's going to work with doj coin developers to make it about air cryptocurrency key clear when alon said that tesla was going to start accepting bitcoin that sent the price of bitcoin way up and then he said they were gonna stop in that senate right back down. Doesn't outface at it made sense because it was weird that he said we're gonna accept bitcoin which is like notoriously bad for the environment. Tesla is eight electric car company. And then you know. He reneged on. That was like okay. No we're not going to accept it because it's bad for the environment some ways he's just like playing around. It seems it seems like he's playing around and there's not a teacher on the playground to stop him. Is that right because his parents bought the playground so they owe him okay right or i guess case a cryptocurrency like who is going to stop him. The crypto police right the the thing with currencies. It's not clear who is any. Us government body regulates at. It's it's unregulated. So he has a lot less to worry about with his crypto tweets than he does with ones for tesla so it sounds like we can expect this to keep happening is the last nike tweeted a medium and some text emoji about breaking up with bitcoin. Stock down something like five percents this morning so it doesn't seem like he's gonna stop he's having fun with it tweet. A lot tweets to express myself some people use their. He's not even just tweeting. About tesla and crypto. He's also like testing the waters with baby. Shark we did that. How much he loves baby. Sharpen how much it crushes that or something and that sent stock price of sohn's publisher up something like ten percent of my head. Why does this matter there. Are there consequences. It's easy for us to talk and joke about and certainly easy for yuan to but why should we pay attention to his tweets of crypto. This matter is because it's become much more mainstream So many more institutional investors and then just regular retail investors. You know people like you and me are investing in stuff like bitcoin and the price is all over the place. He's making people lose or gain lots of money with a single tweet. One of my coworkers said something. Like i lose two hundred bucks every time elon. Musk tweets about bitcoin so here we have someone who is often the richest person in the world tweeting and making others either richer reporter right it might be insubstantial to him but he is definitely messing with other people's wealth. There's also the issue of tesla having a lot of bitcoin so you can say that sort of unfair they were able to turn a profit last quarter. I leave because of selling bitcoin so he's able to make money on.

How to Win at Work and Succeed at Life with Michael Hyatt
"Today. We have a lot of celebrity entrepreneurs advocating what we call them the book the hustle fallacy. Where you just work hard. Keep your nose to the grindstone crank. You'll put in the hours crank out the work. can eventually. you'll be able to slow down. Give attention to your health. You most important relationships and and be able to have some semblance of balance. There are some people that choose sort of the opposite approach and we call this the ambition break where they just pump the brakes on their career. And they say look. It's it's not worth blowing out my personal health or my most important relationships so i will settle for less than what i know. I'm capable of in my career. We think and by the way. I wrote this book with my oldest daughter. Megan who is the ceo. Michael hanalani albany now but the we believe that's a false choice that that it's not either or as you said but it's both and and that's the double win double win fire nation and. I hope you're listening to michael right. Now you're asking yourself these important questions. Are you right now. Claiming a false summits about that. Are you putting yourself in a situation where you're facing an impossible choice. These are hard questions but imported ones. You wanna answer now not five years ten years from now and your book's subtitle michael is five principles to free yourself from the cult of overwork. Why did you choose to subtitle. We really came to the conclusion as we listen to. A lot of people like elon. Musk for example which has done amazing things in the world. But when he advocates that people should be working eighty to a hundred hours a week and he's done that at numerous entrepreneurial conferences because he said if you can put in that kind of time you can do three to four months what your competitors will take a year to do and that will give you a competitive advantage. But what he doesn't share is he's now on his third marriage his five sons by omission. Don't speak to him. You know it's come it at considerable cost and i know you know. His driving. Passion in life is to go to mars but he might be there alone when it's all said and done and and this is kind of a cult and it has all the same kind of addictive properties that you know. Alcoholism would have or any other substance abuse or even unhealthy religion. And that's why we named it
China Order Report Drops TSLA Stock
"Everybody rob our here and today we of course going to be discussing the information's report on net new orders for tesla in china during the month of may this report was published a couple of hours before market closed. The stock dropped dramatically. And of course it was quickly picked up by other means. That's as well so we'll discuss my thoughts on that. Then we also have a couple stories on recall. Some news from cat l. expanding in china an update on gigabyte lynn an update on the plaid model s. As we await the delivery event. One week from that are so tussle stock today starting out the day just fine trading a little bit below yesterday's close but not too far in early morning trading and then in the afternoon we saw a report from the information this was a couple of hours before market closed on as this report came out tussle dropped sharply about three percent in less than ten minutes and then continued to decline into close finishing the day down five point three percent to five hundred and seventy dollars four cents that compared to the nasdaq down one percent on the debt so that report is where we will start. The headline for this piece is quote. Tesla's china orders have in may internal data shows as crisis deepens and quote. They go on to write that quote. The company's monthly net orders in china dropped to about ninety eight hundred in may for more than eighteen thousand april according to a person with knowledge of the data the sharp drop reflected a drastic shift in chinese consumers appetite for tesla whose founder elon. Musk has celebrity status. Their orders in january after the release of the motto sub and then slowly eased off before cratering last month. In march tesla had twenty one thousand that orders even on a week over week basis order so far haven't shown any signs of recovery. This person set and quote. The rest of the article is then pay walled. But i did read the full article. There's nothing new in the rest of it. It's really just kind of detailing. The situation that has been unfolding in china. All stuff that we've talked about with the shanghai auto show protest the government wanting to meet with tesla. I think back in march just to talk about safety all things that we have followed as they have unfolded so nothing new in the rest of it.
Brain Chip Will Hopefully End Elon Musk’s Outlandish Musings
"Musk has announced that he's neuralink. Brain chip will end language in five to ten years which is just such great news because then and five to ten years. We won't have to hear elon. Musk saying things like this. Must spin on the rafer again because it did he say this on on joe rogan. I think that mentioned that in the article right. And i just find it so weird like the certainty that these men have of their hypothesis of the future. Like you know. I used to make up a language me and my sister bible study to covertly communicate rebellious desires. And like just. Because i don't have the money to throw behind that know. I'll never know if it has any legs behind swindon kingdom who just has to stop there but he gets to try all this stuff out. Did you have a secret language as a kid. You know where you would hide the words. Yeah back slang but it was just like a verger so like a guy of a gum. Spaghetti kevin gang of attacks gang and it was great. Because if you didn't tell anyone how it worked she just split the words and stick it in the middle. And i think is pretty easy to walk out but look we needed a way to communicate with each other is either that or handwritten notes of who we fancied so. Yeah i appreciate any made up language. The great thing about elon. Musk is that he will consistently say these kind of things and then continued to say them despite the fact that he said things like this before that haven't come true like he promised that at this point we would be going around and driverless cars for example or that we would be on mars or that a again. I really wanted to get inside the head of the dude bro. Phenomenon where you're like. Imagine feeling that the answers to life being funneled to you directly because you're a wealthy entrepreneur. You do martial arts
Elon Musk's Starlink Could Get a Boost From German Subsidies
"Satellite internet and other kinds of high speed. Internet service can be pricey before you can start using it. there's an upfront costs for. All the special hardware requires now. Germany is working on a program that could pay out a total of one hundred and twenty million dollars to cover those costs for its citizens. Initiative would be a boon for high speed internet providers. Like starlink the satellite internet venture from elon. Musk for more on this. I'm joined now by our germany correspondent boy pinch husky. Hey brian thanks for being here a and thanks for having me okay. So first things first. I wonder if you could start by explaining this problem of internet access in germany for us. Really why are they considering these subsidies in the first place. Yeah you see. It's a very unusual thing. That's going on around here. Because germany is europe's biggest economy and it's a technologically very developed nation a very industrialized nation famous for his various industries. Not least the car industry but however They've been struggling for whatever reason to provide fast internet to the whole of the population. I mean part of the reason is because investment hasn't been done into the actual sort hard infrastructure of of the ground networks required to bring cables to households and because germany kind of missed out on that. Now they're trying to serve leap over that. Phase of of internet access and just provide wireless internet beat from satellites or later from five g or from the wireless technologies and in order to achieve that in order to connect more people to decent internet source. They they are now considering or we'll be going ahead with subsidies for satellite internet and can you sort of connect the dots for us there. Why satellite internet essentially what. They're looking at is. They wanted to subsidize the purchase of the hardware required for households to receive satellite internet. Now the way it works is that satellite internet providers. Chaz starling elon. Musk starling that's one of the sort of bigger players in the market companies. What they do is they.

Is the Bitcoin Supercycle Theory Dead?
"Today. You're looking at the super cycle theory and weather. Recent price action means that. We need to just banish it to the dust heap of history. There is nothing that people love more than telling you when things go badly that that is real life that all the excitement dreaming and optimism is fake and that the disappointment is real by those metrics. That last couple of weeks have been the realist of this cycle. Bitcoin has limited listlessly along for months. Since it's early to mid april highs and it felt even before the parade of over the last couple of weeks that some momentum had been lost maybe it was not enough new institutions buying or at least not buying fast enough for publicly enough. Maybe it was more of the trader and wail attention shifting to a theory defy dog coins. Whatever the case the scene was set for some executives force to push the mood and consequently the price even lower and along that came perfectly in the form of the fickle friend that loki. Trickster himself elon. Musk after helping. Drive the price from the high thirty thousand to sixty thousand thanks to tesla's big bitcoin by eu on effectively took it all back when he announced tesla was reversing course on bitcoin payments for vehicles due to environmental concerns that was followed up with china fudd insignificant seeming at first when it was just reuters sensationalizing policy that had been enacted for years earlier but it became much more significant when it was the vice premier of china talking about bitcoin mining bands from the highest echelons more significant still was when it was minors rapidly disgorging themselves of bitcoin and even in some cases mining machines in order to have capital to swiftly pick up and move operations should things manifest that minor selling drove. Another wave of price declines over the weekend. Although this time it was driven by spot selling not just liquidations and mandy last week can feel really really bleak. I was watching on twitter. And i saw desperation capitulation. Just real glumness. None of that fun. Bravado that crypto twitter does so well. In fact i saw a few people comment that it felt like a full bear cycle hyper compressed in a couple of days and that's not inaccurate
Tesla Cybertruck 'Armor Glass' and UI Patents Reveal Exciting Features
"Yesterday the us patent office released patent application documents filed by tesla in relation to the cyber truck user interface and some other details about fifty pages of text an a series of twenty drawings or so. And there's some interesting things buried in here so again. These drawings are showing the user interface and the first thing that jumps out if we look at any of these is the six hundred. Ten mile range showed on the way on the right there. And that's the range that is displayed on the majority of these images of course ever since the truck unveiling tesla has listed the top and range for the cyber shock as five hundred miles. Plus but hundred ten that would be quite the plus similarly as we've been talking about with the f. One fifty lightning unveiling the payload for the cyber chalk has been listed fourteen thousand pounds plus one of the other eu i- images here shows the cyber truck pulling a trailer it lists the payload capacity has twenty thousand pounds now. Of course we've got no way of knowing if these are gonna actually end up being a specs but make you wonder why they would show up in the patent application if these numbers weren't in the ballpark of something that tesla was testing or targeting now to be fair these due to some extent look like placeholder values. We can see that on this payloads green. You can see to pay load and it still six hundred ten miles of range. I think we can be confident that that is not realistic. And in a real scenario tesla would likely be adjusting. The range display their based on the pilot. So it doesn't negate these things being interesting but it just shows that tesla's probably not taking a screen grab from a final interface with the final range number and payload things like that with those caveats in mind that might provide some interesting insight on that trailer so seen an image on tesla's site of the truck hauling this sort of sabir truck ask looking trailer from another one of these you i- images. We can see what appears to be in the backup camera possibly that

I mean is wild since we talked so much has changed in such a short amount of time. Let's just start. I guess with the question that i think everyone is trying to sort through right now. Which is are we still in a bull market. Have we shifted into a bear market. Is there some weird dead cat. Bounce thing going on where. Where are we in this market cycle and is the cycle that we normally think about it. Even the right stick to us anymore. So we're talking about crypto here. Right crypto specifically.

It might involve not crypto as well and the answer that question but actually Well we've just we just saw a fifty percent drop so this idea of a super cycle that that would never happen again. Well that's that's out the window. And i do think it was precipitated. By the es g movement to end this notion a which was exacerbated by elon. Musk that there are some real environmental problems here. with bitcoin with the mining bitcoin and And so i think that a lot of institutional buying went on pause. Shall i say and i think there were a lot of expectations that there would be follow through by institutions. We wrote a paper last september october. Saying that we did believe this. New asset class was finally getting the respect that it needs from institutions There have been some leaders out there. Certainly a fidelity and mass mutual and then on the balance sheet you've seen square and tesla micra strategy. Of course of course.

We're going to have a long discussion about all kinds of things. been very nice to do this in the evening here and we've been chatting about all kinds of things, but we're GONNA. Get into it really quickly and talk about Tesla and SPACEX. We're GONNA. Talk about this year. We're going to talk about the boring company and anything else. allowed to talk about because people like to hear you talk, so let's start from the beginning about this year, okay? You've getting some very interesting interviews. You've gotten on twitter. Made some mistakes. What's okay? Let's talk about star with twitter. What would I have an obsession with twitter to in an addiction? How do you look at that with you? What is going on? What's going on? I mean aside from from what happens with you in twitter. Well, I. I tweet interesting things pretty much as they come to me and. You know probably not much of a filter I find it entertaining. Like all other people might find the center -taining. Sometimes, they do right and sometimes. Yeah, it's pretty random. Just at night. What are you at home? You're doing this, yeah? Mostly. Mostly at home, it's mostly I. Think I spent a lot less time on twitter than probably think maybe. Fifteen, ten fifteen minutes or something? Yeah, well, people pay attention when you do that. Yeah It's pretty interesting. What my like most people I'm most interested in I mean elected like some little tweet about of. That was it but it was like low case I black heart enemy. like everyone loved that one of those my most popular tweets all right. What about the things they didn't love. Are you under strict orders not to do that? Is that correct we will be? Will you have to change your twitter behavior? Not really not really under the recent settlement. You aren't you don't have to be careful about what you tweet if it's anime. That's one thing. But, it's just business you can't. Now I think it's mostly just if there's something that might cause a substantial movement in the stock during trading hours. That's about it. That's about it, so you can't do that without somebody getting mad. Yeah, okay well. That's a lot of people. WHO WOULD YOU CONSIDER IT? I'M GONNA get off in a second, but do you consider it a communications medium? How do you look at it? I mean a lot of us it that way I use it that way. Awfully. Donald trump uses it that way. How do you look at I? Look at it as a way to learn things. Stay sort of like kind of stay in touch with. What's happening? It's like it feels like dipping into the flow of consciousness of society That's what it feels like and then. It's like we can wear like a guest sized sometimes. Use Twitter to express. Myself and and that's a weird thing to do I suppose not too much. I mean it is and I. Think some of The Times is very funny other times. It's not so funny, is there? Okay all right all right, but when you do it in I'm not going to get the SEC because I I understand. You can't talk about that very much nothing to do with that although you did tweak them in one of your tweets, but at some point that will stop. You you made some remark lenders so many tweets that you do that so obnoxious it's it's hard to know there's an obnoxious tweeted. It was yes, it was oh. Don't do that. I forgot what you. WanNa. Look at your tackling on Halloween. But the ones that I think I do want to ask about is the press you pick up. You pick fights with the press over twitter, and then you have all your fans of which there are many. Are you aware of what they do once you start them off. Well, I think I mean say my my regard for the press has has dropped quite dramatically. Explain that place. there. The the amount of untruthful stuff that has written is unbelievable. Wall Street Journal Front page article about like the FBI is closing in. That is utterly false. That's absurd to print less. Such a falsehood on the front page of a major newspaper is outrageous. Why are they even journalists? Why do you understand you hit tension the mural people. But you understand the mood in this country around the press, and the dangers of attacking especially when the president is doing that in quite an aggressive enemy of the state and everything else it. It's disturbing when someone like us, a leader does that to our goes along with it, sure the press to be honest and truthful, okay and research their articles. And correct things properly when there are false all right which they don't do okay, but I'm asking if you understand where of course I do, and what do you think of that? Are you worried about unleashing dangerous cycle? That is a lot of the presser worried about I suggest. To heart and do better. What about with Donald? Trump does about enemy of the people. You look at it that way. No. How do you just you don't like falsehoods?.

May Eleventh saying he'd be defying the public health order that had closed one of his factories in California. He tweeted Tesla is restarting production today against Uva County rules. Sometimes he's just playing with people other times. You means it you know. He uses it as a performance. I think is that is what he's doing. That's Cara Swisher the dean of Tech Journalists. She started recode hosts the pivot podcast and she's covered Elon. Musk for a long time. And Cara does not suffer fools we. Yeah I was going to ask you this past weekend. He tweeted take the red pill which is take. The red pill is a line from the Matrix. It means basically wake up and see the truth guests. It's a line from a movie but it's also become popular with the alright alright has grabbed it but before that a lot of techies like that line too but I think he fully knows the all the implications. I think a lot of people get angry because he knows the implications and he still makes a joke anyway. The thing about Elon Musk's tweeting now. Is that it's part joke. Part performance art and part defiance of public health guidelines and it has real stakes his companies and their workers. I ask Herod help me understand what is going on in his brain. Let's separate to lose many Lonzo like let's talk about the many lawns there are. There is the entrepreneur and the risk taker and the creator of things and Tesla no matter what utility llamas. That card is amazing. It's an amazing cards at amazing accomplishment. He's moved the stasis of the car industry into electric vehicles. I think all on his own and they have followed him and so in that way. It's really quite an accomplishment. Then there's the other along along the bad boy which he likes to play too you know with his sort of loud dating his loud tweeting his and everything else. And that's part and parcel to his real focus. Which is he's almost. I've said this religious about wanting to get these cars and saving the planet from Climate Change. He really believes that he does and that sounds grandiose but he really does believe that we are in a in an existential crisis around climate change one of his interest in Mars. So there's lots of levels of depth to this guy at the same time. There's lots of levels of superficiality. That's almost like indulgent and juvenile. And so you have to sort of. It's hard to mesh the two things today on the show with Cara as our guide. That's what we're going to try to do figure out what makes this guy.

"Democratic Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez talking about her ongoing beef with Elon Musk. How did the Tesla boss become this? Big Name this hero an icon to so many. How did he get so much? Fawning media coverage both in the tech world and beyond. How did this cult of personality arise? Jack Crosby is a writer and journalist. Who's been reporting on uncovering Elon? Musk for several years now. He's covered politics tech and labor issues for splinter rolling stone the Atlantic and many other publications in fact Jack recently wrote a piece for the worker on newsletter discourse blog headlined Elon. Musk made me a socialist. He joins me now from New York. Jack thanks for joining me on deconstructed. Thanks for having me. How did he lawn? Musk make you a socialist. So at the time this was sort of early on in my career as a journalist I was working as attack and transportation reporter and this was in a sort of two thousand sixteen and twenty seventeen. Which for the most part. We're really good years for Elon. Musk there is a huge amount of focus on electric vehicles and autonomous cars and he was kind of on the forefront of both of those industries Had A lot of other really successful projects. Going on with SPACEX and things like that it was not however a great time for the digital media industry and I think sort of a combination of covering mosque for the most part. Doing very sort of flattering uncritical reporting on him. In order to you know because that was what was liked by Google Algorithms and our facebook fans and You know outlets. Were kind of doing whatever they could for traffic. At the time I think I saw his predatory approach to his own workers that was going largely unremarked by the press and I kind of saw that mirrored in my own kind of work environment At a at a digital media startup and I think that just sort of contributed I think of course with the twenty sixteen election of Donald Trump but All of these things covering an industry. That was very much sort of like an unrestrained level of capitalism kind of contributed to radicalizing my own personal politics so I want to back to the media coverage of Moskva moment before we do that. Just sticking with your piece in your piece also compare musk to trump to donald trump. Say that both billionaire snake oil salesman. How so so? He is a very gifted. Ceo in a lot of ways. The image that he presents to the world is as this sort of like Tony. Stark character is a genius inventor as someone who is going to save the world through science. And as as I'm sure most people covering him we'll tell you his his genius isn't particularly in engineering he. He's very good at hiring. Good engineers SPACEX has had a mixed record of how their rockets will work. But in general with the government contracts that they've fulfilled they've been relatively consistent Tesla vehicles are for the most part well engineered in well-designed vehicles that to do with Ilan differs based on who you ask I sort of came to the opinion that his real genius is a salesman similar to Donald Trump. He's very very good at projecting an image of himself in an image of the brand that he's selling to his fans and convincing them and that's what they want to buy into. And that's why you see such a strong reaction owes. Musk and trump have many many people that are convinced that what they are offering. The world is going to benefit them personally Musk has thousands and thousands and thousands of Primarily I would say that. His fans are primarily men. Who are you know? Sort of curious. Future forward Maybe a little nerdy kind of guys who are interested in these concepts of renewable energy of electric vehicles of space exploration and things like that. And they're convinced that musk is the one that's going to be able to deliver them deliver that for them and the founded dorm don't they jack especially online in the comment section on? Youtube and elsewhere. Yeah he has a very similar following to to trump into what you see in a lot of kind of very passionate online communities. Which is that any sort of criticism or attack on. Musk is treated as both a personal attack and a sort of reputation of things that must allegedly stands for. So if you write an article that says Elon. Musk is treating workers particularly well. And he's been union busting for years that's going to be perceived by his fans as you standing in the way of progress as you are you know. Why are you trying to disparage the one man who is going to save us? Who is working for a cleaner future for electric cars? They'RE GONNA they're gonNA love me off to the show goes out from this. You mentioned the union issue. One very he claims not to be very political but one very political position he has taken is anti union. He doesn't like organized labor. He's fought tooth and nail to prevent workers in his bay. Area Tesla plump from unionizing. Hasn't he yet he's. He's done this for years there. There have been a couple of sort of notable points in this. There was a a tesla employees in two thousand seventeen named Jose Moron Who wrote a public medium post detailing sort of the conditions in in one of the Tesla facilities? I believe it was the Fremont Facility Talking about mandatory overtime a workplace injuries and things like this musk's response was basically to claim that this guy was a plant by the united auto workers that was trying to organize it tesla and there was a sort of whole mini news cycle at the time where he was railing on like the. Uaw spies and he. He sent out a public email. That sort of compared him in a David and Goliath analogy where Tesla which at the time was one of the highest valued automakers in the country was David Arrayed against these forces arrayed against him and he's one of the men on the planet. Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean I. I think he is not worth at. The time was not in the not in the gates are basis territory. But yeah he's he's a billionaire. Is it true? He wants promised his employees a coaster if they agreed not to union he he did must general strategy in dealing with adversity is to make outlandish promise And then sort of hope that everyone forgets about it by the time. The news cycle is ended so in in public that often comes with. He'll he'll make big promises about what Tesla cars are going to do. When his employees were expressing some discontent he sent out this e mail that was basically saying once Tesla becomes a profitable company. We're going to be able to do all these things that I've wanted to do for ages one of which was free frozen yogurt at a lot of the facilities and another was something he referred to as a tesla. Pod Roller which. I think it's safe to say I have not seen anything about that actually happening. I don't believe that Tesla currently has a pod roller coaster If they do I would be extremely the making the of sweeping sweeping promises. Exactly no fact check exactly and that's a lot of these things have just gone by wayside. the big the big thing in in two thousand seventeen of parliament's vehicles and musk was one of the first people that was really at the forefront promising. Our vehicles are going to have. There's some technical details level four and level five automation and things which basically means that they could drive in a variety of circumstances on assisted by a human driver and musk had a whole. You can't really call an ad campaign but sort of a marketing blitz where he was promising that by the end of two thousand seventeen tesla would be able to do across cross country coast to coast road trip in one of its vehicles with no with no human input and as we've seen now you know that that has not really happened. The limitations on autonomous cars are far far more than the experts were predicting well. Then the the inventors were predicting back in two thousand seventeen and these things have not really gone forward as he said they would and he gets away with it because the media let him get away with it. You yourself say. You spent years writing quote credulous pieces about his business and technology achievement. Lots OF PEOPLE. Right puff pieces about him. Those who don't get as you say attacked by his supporters. How much is the media to blame for the cult of Elon? Musk so I think. An enormous amount. At that time I will say that it does seem now to be changing and of course there you know. This is not a discount. There were reporters at national publications. I think I mentioned RIMAC earlier at Buzzfeed News and Mike Isaac at the Times was mostly covering Uber. Dana Hall who now writes for Bloomberg. I think these reporters were doing very good. Fact-based responsible journalism about mosque. And if you look at Dana Hall's mentions on twitter at any given time. She has hundreds of musk fan boys even though she's one of the most sort of even keeled reporters on him in the business must convoys attacking her all the time for being anti Tesla but at the time in this sort of digital media landscape for a lot of different reasons laudatory coverage of mosque was extremely widespread. And it wasn't just him. This was the thing that we saw People doing for facebook people doing google. There were there were whole outlets. You know who's WHO's ethos was in sort of positive. Press for the advance of of big technology and musk was one of the most interesting and sort of engaging figures in that world and so people got a lot of traffic off of posts. That were that we're highlighting the crazy weird ambitious things that he was he was doing. You mentioned the crazy weird stuff prior to this week's decision which has gone in his favor on reopening the tests and our plan he seemed to be melting down quote unquote. He was tweeting that I'm willing to be arrested. He was tweeting the other week. The Oh my company share prices too high. Is that all. Acta wonder because people like musk and trump and Boris Johnson. I sometimes wonder if the whole eccentric stick is just that stick distraction totally performance and fake. What do you think having covered? Musk for so many years. I think it's a bit of both has always been streak. He's always leaned into this image of being an centric billionaire. I think in recent years he really has perhaps gone a little bit too far. I don't know what has been going on with him personally. His personal life has certainly been chaotic and the decisions that he's made appear to have gotten him in real trouble most notably in the in the defamation case in countersuit involving when he called the cave diver who decided his plans to build a submarine to get the tie soccer team out of a cave. He called this British Cave. Diver a pedophile twitter. But he won that case interesting he got away with it. This is the classic thing with must and this week. He's gotten away with it again. Having defied the law reopened his plant. And now he's got the county retroactively approving. What he did is pretty dangerous isn't and they'll just immediate. Let's let him get him. Get Away with stuff politicians especially in California where he has a lot of clout. They basically saying this week. Almost can do it every once right and I think he's. He's also been enabled by his own board of directors for a long time because we saw another Bombastic sort of hard charging CEO. Travis Kalanick's who is an uber and twenty seventeen whose indiscretions eventually did end in him. Being sort of ousted from the pub. The company is public facing side. That hasn't happened to mosque because as you said he does continue to get away with it and he knows that he wields a tremendous amount of power over the communities that his his companies in his facilities operate in. And.

"With ways. Lawn my all just happened. In this time I turned into a squirrel. That's the thing I do 'cause that sounds like a man and I just picture because it's an audio only ask for some people. Have you hear that noise? A magic became a frog. Wow that's riveting riveting if I say so myself your face own stand do but I think nicest part about. You don't understand too because here's the thing that was going to say. Let's let's clarify some things because before I go into my science stuff about electric vehicles. I looked in a little bit to Tesla. Just wanted to make sure I knew some groundwork facts and these are some things I found out so tesla was actually created by two different people. Elon Musk was not part of this. Was Martin Eberhard and mark carpeting. Where the gay. They're fake does sound like fake names market number number. Dr Bernard there was a third person who was added and then Ilan. Musk came on as a venture capitalist. Oh Lord Oh he basically like in my mind I was like Oh Elon. Musk created and founded tesla and then they actually so allow. Musk in those first five people. Even though the three joined later they signed a deal allowed. Elon Musk and those other. To call themselves founders. So even though he wasn't technically a founder he wanted and I'm not blaming this on him because maybe those other people wanted that as well because he gave money he wanted to be able to be like. I'm a CO founder. Grimes knows all this ranking. Grimes isn't finding out. She's raising things. I also didn't know in January of this year. Tesla became the most valuable American automaker to ever exist. Yeah I we I mean I didn't. I knew that we didn't talk about it in that context but I knew it was the switches. Most profitable limit is not awful. Sorry valued world. It's the second most valuable bag next to next Toyota. So it just Powell and in the end of January of this year. So that's why I was confused because I'm like how are they never profitable? I guess there's stuff like how much research and development they have to do. And how because they don't have retailers like you can't go to like a car what you say shop. Where do you get a car? I'm so surprised. Yeah exactly 'cause they're like toge- so that so they have to spend so much on promotion and getting like their hope is obviously long-term once they get market saturation than the money starts rolling in but I think they every silk every Silicon Valley Story. But that story happens to me. I hear it all the time and I'm just like all these dudes walking around being like okay. Well well just your way. Oh it is. It's like it's wild. It's like if you're so. They made eighty six point. Five billion dollars in America. And I'm like if you can't be prompt that's crazy but I guess the whole point is they are having to do so much legwork to make the technology and to get the resources to do it and to put into marketing into all those kind of things so I don't understand business but there is a point where like you're making one hundred billion dollars and they think that the best crib for a on flux twelve number exactly I do think his crib is just going to be one of the cars going to have no railings. And it's just going to be like it's GonNa look like a doctor's chair and he's going to elevate about it or she or they also just like I'm not going to bail on the podcast. I just have to tech someone because I have an appointment only God to send a message while you helped me very digital appointment that I needed to know I do think that I do. Think that Tesla being the second like market market capitalization at the second most profitable or not profitable. Soy Valuable car company to meet was so surprising. Yeah every other company has also existed for like seven years ago. There's there's there hunter everywhere but I haven't seen as you know. Maybe I honestly don't know they're all over like la but like being in Toronto. Where are they? I don't know so those were only a couple of facts about Tesla but I wanted to talk a little bit about whether or not. Tesla is actually sustainable. Okay cool because this video we've been trying to think about making. Yeah until it's for this for my facts here. I've leaned heavily into an awesome channel on youtube called are changing climate. Like my favorite. So they cover all sorts of topics definitely check them out. I love it. It's mostly voice over with just like stock images that like essay. Hello so just some faxing. Spit out to kind of analyze whether or not. Tesla's are actually sustainable. So the impact of Tesla is sixty eight percent more emissions. What am I talking about the sorry? This is about the extraction process. We're talking about so. The Tesla gets on a roll. But there's a lot that happens before that so getting them it's resources it's actually worse for the environment in that process is sixty eight percent. Yes so because it's so energy intensive. They're trying to find rail rare metals. I think what they do. Is they dig giant holes. Like there's a mine in China where they're digging for these rare metals and they dumped toxic chemicals on it just again for the battery. Yeah so when they do that. For example only zero point two percent of what comes out of the ground is used but they basically destroying parts of the land right so it's a hugely problematic process. This is for the battery. This is this is for materials that are used mostly in the battery but get used in the cars. Well if I wrote here where they're you wonder. If there's any emeralds used them hello call your down from them. Roll Mine. Did you know his dad? Also kind tell you one thing just. His Dad had a baby with his stepdaughter who he knew the stepdaughter. Since she was four and that just isn't he also disenfranchise from his family? I was going to say he doesn't like he does not like but there's there's older fresno so sorry I was just trying to. That's where I'm feeling kind of scattered because I have to tax basically. Yeah those materials. Those rare metals are used in the battery headlights and onboard electronics. So crazy cool screen. Yeah and so yeah. It's basically that extraction process is extremely dirty and his knock green basically in any way it's producing sixty eight percent more emissions than an actual actual than a typical car would but also use gas and coal powered equipment for extraction so on top of destroying the environment and releasing emissions your. They're not using like electric materials to or like solar power materials to get these materials either. Because yes you have like huge factory pits and stuff not factory pits but open pits using Colin gas and burning the whole time but ultimately once the car is on the road. Obviously it's way born greeting even though it depends on where you are because you might be using energy anyway if you're plugging into a circuit that's not using. Renewable energy is using gasoline goal. Seeing a lot of them all over Los Angeles and California and learning about California's grit system. It's really it's quite green California's one of the best places you'd be having a Tesla and actually feeling like okay. I'm not I'm not using as many emissions into Ontario is extremely green to a lot of wind like energy so it is interesting to think about the two places we've sort of spent time recently. It wouldn't be SMART AVATARS. La If you've got a foreigner and you could feel sort of pat on the back okay. It's it is and ultimately they found that after eighteen months on the road and electric car actually compensates for all those things that it did when it's with tobacco that it becomes more green from that which is eighteen months non very long and neither are going to have a car for ten fifteen twenty years. That is going to be a lot better but it's still enough time to allow you to be like okay. It's not this magical thing. Yeah and here's still impacting. The environment like our phones and I like they're trying to find these rare metals that are needed in places there can exploit or destroy or whatever sack to what I was saying about the concept of maybe not owning a car. Like how do we culturally shifted so that we use public transport ridesharing apps like what do we that's ultimately what this videos discussion about? So a gas powered car has two times emissions over. Its lifetime but ultimately it's like you know one of the things that Tesla's many electric companies but tesla tries to recycle most of his batteries about seventy percent of its batteries get recycled which means I don't need to go mining from war and they're not making a new car. Ms Being reused. So there's you know what I mean like there's elements of even once they get it they can reuse it again later so many people are buying it has lime probably also have like Harari and also. Have you know what I mean? Yeah if you already have a vehicle. It's actually probably not better to get a new car unless you need right so ultimately should you get an electric vehicle if you're in the market for a car right now awesome and you can afford it. That's great but if you have a car that's not that old and you could still. You're not doing a service by creating a bigger demand for these things. There's still an impact on the climate on the environment from this. So don't just think it's a fix all if anything we should be it might minimize individual emissions but those are actually not often the biggest part of our problem right like we have to fight for legislation that will regulate companies and regulate countries and help to make us all actually oil companies early on tried to create those campaigns of like. What can you yourself to be more green to try and get the sort of like energy and momentum off their backs should always remember. It's like obviously do your best individually but it's really action together against corporations and getting politicians to lobby behind you so I think we can have a couple of extra minutes here to talk about some some more thoughts about Yulon after we've gone through these studies. Well that certainly didn't help so I do think again going back to my initial stance two years ago. Even I still think it's a noble cause like excluding him for example for car companies and brand new car companies like ten. I shouldn't say brand new car. Companies that focus exclusively on electric vehicles. I think that's a noble cause. I do think it's a good thing and I'm excited that culturally. We seem to be shifting toward that being the future but we also need to talk about on because that is the name of this podcast. It's Elon. Musk you know update or whatever and I actually am still. I feel a little bit like okay I. This is what I was worried about like. What I'm I'm a man with these with this history with Megalomania vibe just like again trying to swoop in and save the world and in fact the every way that he's acted I've felt in the past has made me skeptical of them that I can't believe we're sitting here and he's like saying that crown of cases are going to be zero by the end of April with his platform. I'm just frustrated because I don't want to be told you so but it's like frustrating to me when it's like it's like it's like.

"I mean I can't imagine saying that to a romantic partner on your wedding night of all things or ever but I also think it speaks to some of the stuff. We were talking about a little earlier about how he needs to constantly be in control. And what is that phrase if not you know. I'm in control and as the two of them are getting divorced. I'm GonNa Watch the exact phrasing so this is a paraphrase but you know she says something about not being happy in the relationship and he says something like if you were my employees. Yeah I would have fired you what that story indicates to me. One is not just his desire for control but also a misogynistic streak yeah. There's you know I'm trying to think about how to phrase this because there's certainly a streak of misogyny Nia among his fans It's something that especially women reporters who cover Elon. Musk counter a lot. I personally told that I must be quote unquote obsessed with them but there is this sort of culture that he comes from that is not especially women. Friendly like Silicon Valley of that period is not especially women friendly and it's still well not women friendly now so there is kind of a casual misogyny and a lot of the areas in which he's operating And like that's true of aerospace. That's true of cars. That's true of software These are all extremely dude turf places where dudes tended to defend their turf. So how exactly did things end between paypal and the other co-founders and Elon. Musk so Pay Pal goes public in two thousand two and after a couple of months is bought by Ebay and I think must get something like one hundred and sixty five million dollars out of this transaction the overall transaction is something like one point five billion okay. So what's the pay pal money. He does chew things first of all. He founds a rocket company. Space Exploration Technologies SPACEX. You found that in two thousand and two but the other thing that he does is he invests in this a car. Companies Company was making electric cars. He's the series investor Fester for Tesla Inc And that takes place in two thousand four and later Must becomes credited as a CO founder of Tesla after the break picks up speed.

"Lisboa Plateau deputy editor at the verge and reporter on the. Musk beat how did he long become the person he is today. Can you tell me a little bit about his childhood. Oh Yeah I could definitely tell you about his childhood. So he's he's born in South Africa his parents split. He stays with his dad after the divorce. His Dad by all accounts counts is not a great guy and so he has kind of this rough home life and he's not doing that well with his peers at school either. What do you mean by that at one point? He was beaten so badly by his schoolmates that he was hospitalized. I mean. He was bullied so he grows up in South Africa. I mean he now lives in the. US How did he end up there. I moved to Canada and then he moved to the US and in both cases it had to do with going to school. He went to college essentially and his family is actually actually Canadian right. I think his mother might be Canadian. Sorry I like plugging that in. Their people should know so i. He goes to Canada Canada and I think he's at Queen's University which is in Ontario and from there he moves on to the University of Pennsylvania. where I think. He got dual degrees in economics. Physics all right and at this point is he already thinking up businesses that he wants to Creator you know whereas whereas my net yeah I mean so. There's I mean the economics degree suggests to me that he's already thinking about business but there's also some anecdotes in leave ANZUS biography about him like hosting parties where he didn't necessarily drink but he sold people drink. Cups made a bunch of money that way so it seems like you know this is something that he's he's been thinking about from the jump so anyway he he leaves Penn in Nineteen ninety-five and gets accepted it into a PhD program at Stanford University in California in physics. But as he's going out there you may remember around this time. There's the internet boom and so he's in this program for. I think like two days like literally. Today that's before he drops out uh-huh decides to launch his first company which is called Zip to okay. What's too so it was sort of an early? The attempt to get newspapers online. Believe it or not but anyway This gets acquired by Compaq for something like three hundred million dollars. There's in nineteen ninety nine and with this money must goes on to co found x dot com an online financial service and a payment company. What exactly was launched vision for that company? It was one of the first online banks as far as I can tell. Musk wanted to challenge the banking industry he wanted to disrupt banking so this is an ATM. We're going to do is transformed traditional banking industry. I do not fit the picture of a banker. Raising fifty million dollars is a matter of making a series of phone calls and the money is there you know. It wasn't a a small scope type of deal that musk was working on. But what happens is x dot com winds the merging with infinity. which is the startup by guy? Peter Thiel you might hurt him anyway. conformity has a money. Transfer Service called. Pay Pal. They this is where there's some friction Because you know you on mosque really has this idea for an extensive banking service US and he. He wants x dot com to be something much bigger than that. And there's sort of a fight about branding because he wants the branding for pay pal to be. I pay pal brought to you by acts and pretty much everybody else is like people like and recognize. Pay Pal they don't know what acts is Let's just let's just make it pay pal so at this point. It must doesn't like the fact that that the company that he was working on the name is getting a raced. Yeah I mean basically. It's a sort of a question of scope right like do you want to focus on these online payments or do you want to do something much bigger and must get pushed out so that they can narrow the scope and focus on these online payments. And I from the former. CFO OF PAP- house at something like it would have killed the company if you had stayed on as CEO for six more months must got kicked out of pay pal. Essentially is what you're saying. I mean he was still on the board but yes he was he was fired as a CEO. How do you think that impacted him? I think that getting kicked out had a pay pal was a formative experience for him because it seems to speak to the way that he controls his other companies. There's a bunch of anecdotes of him. I'm talking about how much he doesn't like public companies. Because you can't really control things and you can't really have a long-term vision and I think that after his experience at pay pal it must decided okay like I need to be in charge of my own companies in such a way that I can't be removed like this again. How was Elon? Musk perceived at that point like who was he in the world of of business in the world of tech I think he was sort of perceived in the way that most executives are perceived. which is you know you're known within your own circle but you're not necessarily a household name so he is not the guy that we know today? No He's definitely not and you can see. There are some mm early interviews with him where people are talking to him. He's like doesn't have the same kind of media savvy he later develops and it's like seeing A Proto Yulon. Musk ask a lot of the stuff that we see later is already there But it hasn't quite developed. Do you have an example of of guests his media media clumsiness at the time I'm I'm thinking of a specific interview and I wish I could remember. There's one with him and his then wife and they're you know talking about how their life hasn't really been changed that much by this money except that they bought a nice car and its him showing off his car Which is called McLaren F one? It's a million dollars for a car. It's it's It's Oh yes yes I know exactly what interview you're talking about. This is actually a pretty famous interview. Where where he just seems like kind of I don't know he hasn't doesn't fully settled into his new life? He's a little bit awkward. He just seems like he's also beaming right. He's really proud of this car. He's thrilled thrilled out of his mind. Nine completely. It's actually pretty well but just three years ago. I was showering and the at the Y.. And Sleeping on the office floor and now obviously GonNa Millionaire car and quite a few creature comforts.

"But like when, you know for a fact that there is some much better way to do them that is already being done and that what could really be helpful would be for some diligent, careful people to like learn about that. Like let the diligent careful people do it right, and go do something else because there's this tough line to walk with like you have a vision for a new kind of car that seems successful, but also there's the logistical problem of building it like like that's hard man like. That's like, that's the hard stuff. So don't pile on like unrelated unnecessary, hard problems like that just seems crazy. And you just genuinely don't see anybody else acting like that, right. It's interesting, but I feel as if there's something to be said that that craziness and the fact that no one else is doing it is actually part of Elon Musk and therefore Tesla's appeal like their stock price has gone up somewhat over the last week or so. And there are many people who are big fans of this purely because we don't see it. You know, purely because you know, I've seen ten cook, speak, and you know, it's not riveting. But you know, it's the kind of thing that you're like, oh, you know, he runs a company, Elon Musk going on a podcast and smoking a blunt, and again, not inhaling like that's something you do not see. And I think that there is this notion that we have where something being different. Is interesting and it just, you know, that's just how people work. But I also think that that in itself, at this point, Elon Musk could not become Tim cook. That is not going to happen because part of what Elon Musk is best at is being Elon Musk. Then I think that that's an interesting challenge to be so inherently linked, not with just a company, but with a style of doing things that this is kind of baked in now and there's nothing really the board can do about it. There's nothing really people around him can do about it because it both works and doesn't work. And I think that that's a fascinating challenge. I am not an organizational sociologist, but I think that, oh, I mean, I'm not organizational sociologist, but I realized that this is in fact another ration- of the max paper thing that that Nike coming back to you on Friday weeds about charismatic, bureaucratic leadership, like it's not wholly implausible for an. Institution that is built around a charismatic leader to transition to bureaucratic leadership. It is a difficult problem and this is, you know, I know that there are people who have spent their careers working on this and who could probably talk about some trends of organizations that successfully make that leap. But it is very obvious that it requires a willingness to not be a as medical organization anymore, right? Like you need to have an understanding collectively that you want view organization to continue to persist after the person who started it. No longer is there or no longer exists or something like that, and that there's a certain amount of kind of conscious culture building that needs to happen and also a greater tolerance for the things that are going to make it less efficient for that person to get what they want because what they want is not what the company is there to serve anymore. I don't know that it is fully baked into the cake that tesla cannot survive without Elon Musk. I think that we have seen. Look, it would have been very easy for apple when it was rebuilt under, you know, the return of Steve Jobs to be a Steve Jobs Centric enterprise, maybe a little bit less easy because it had existed as a company without him before, but they're really work questions, went him cooked took over for jobs of lake weather. Apple could continue in the way it has and wilder questions about whether he's been as good. There hasn't been like, oh, apple is dead now because apple raised Steve Jobs. So it's possible, but it's difficult and it requires accepting that you're gonna piss off the person at the heart of the organization. I mean, like as reclined is not Elon Musk at all. One of the key differences between as rainy Lon musk is that when you guys started a website as RA was perfectly willing to not be the person making all the decisions..

"And just this week, tesla scaleback the colors is offering a for its model three. Oh, right. And there's also an embarrassing thing about tesla crashing itself. By backing out of garage using summoned feature. What's more tesla is about ten billion dollars in debt hasn't had a yearly profit and is as a mentioned earlier, losing a lot of senior talent, right? So I actually don't super agree that must contest. Law are the same thing as the kind of standard Silicon Valley like, oh, you've invented a bus. I think it's really. Useful to contrast musk with Travis Hellenic of Uber because Uber is kind of was the peak. We're going to make money by just disregarding laws and assuming that everything the public sector has done is totally wrong in screwed up, and we're just going to ignore it until like law enforcement literally forces us to pay attention to the status quo. It appears at this point in time that Uber's business muddled did not have a whole lot to offer beyond that. But what musk is doing is saying, okay, here are some problems that things like MagLev trains where the US really is lagging behind other countries, things like renewable energy powered cars, that a lot of people agree. It would be a really good thing if they existed, the government does not currently have the resources to make those things exist on its own, but is willing to give money to people who are trying to or like offer incentives to make those things more real. Let's step in and I think. This that is made musk himself. It's it's given him a cultural capital that even much more successful forward-facing CEO's like Mark Zuckerberg don't have where like he gets credit, not just for having these wacky ideas, but for grounding them in. Look, we're trying to bring humanity into the future, right? Like he, he ultimately wants everybody to survive on Mars. Yati Yata. There's like there's an actual vision here that's beyond just making money, but that I think is where the kind of personal stress on Ilan musk in the relationship between musk and the various companies he runs gets really fraught. Because the fundamental question to me looking at kind of the portfolio of your on Musk's holdings is like, what makes a company right? Is a company. A product tesla is pretty clearly built around. They have this product line that they're working on. That's great. Is it an audience that they're trying to serve, which is not something that Silicon Valley tends to really invest in is like a. Rand identity or is the company a person. A lot of the concern about whether musk is going to get dumped from tesla is grounded in this question of is tesla, successful idea if Elon Musk isn't running it anymore, that I think is something that we haven't seen in Silicon Valley a lot because it's so assumed that entrepreneurs are there companies, and it's really worth thinking about when we're now at a point where this person like as an individual is clearly doing a lot of things that are not directly related to his company and his company's product is struggling late. What do we make of the relationship between Elon Musk and the company here? And it's interesting because I think that that relationship is really critical because when Elon Musk does something like tweet on August seventh funding secured to go private at, you know, four hundred twenty dollars per share. There was some interest from the SEC about that, and a lot of people descended. Tesla's biggest investor Baillie Gifford spoke to the SEC about the go private plan and the asset manager, James Anderson said that musk needs help.
