Elon Musk, I wrote about him and Tesla before. Above, the full video of him at All Things D. Here's his page on the All Things D site. I really like the direction Elon is taking the world. He is one of the more interesting people right now, and he is changing the world for the better, (I think).
There's more interesting content from last D11, here's the full video of Tim Cook in his second appearance at All Things D. As you might expect, he keeps most of the insight on the surface, which is totally fine, but he has some very interesting insights and points to make regarding Apple's stock prices and the Tax system.
Or have a look at the full interview with Dick Costolo (Twitter's CEO) talk about media partnerships with Twitter, high profile hacks, quick implementation and testing on a big platform. The service seems small, but there's a lot going on there.
Or maybe you're more into Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's COO is talking their strategy to move Facebook into mobile (hint: it's where everything will move to).
There is another one from Mary Meeker on Internet Trends. I saw her slides (not the actual interview yet) and from the slides I'm sceptic because I didn't full agree with some of her numbers. So I'll probably devote a post just to that.
The complete D11 coverage can be found here. It's very much worth your while if you want to know which direction the world is moving towards.
I was drafting a very extensive post on the whole Tesla vs New York Times debacle. But I found out that The Next Web already did an excellent job with this, so if you're not fully up to speed, I'd suggest you read the article.
Also I just learned the Tesla Motors Club has taken it upon themselves to recreate the trip Broder took. They've created a Twitter account that live tweets all the telemetry data in real time especially for this trip. Furthermore Musk has stated they're going to do a time lapse video to further prove their point;
I'm strongly leaning towards Tesla as the 'winner' in this ordeal. It's clear that Tesla holds all the precise vehicle data and can back up their claims. Broders response however, is short of this. More reasons to sympathise with Tesla?
- CNN did the trip and had 96 miles to spare.
- Broder's contributing history seem to consist mostly of jabs towards alternative energy.
- Musk sends stuff into space.
- Keep in mind there are a lot of powerful groups who would benefit from the failing of alternative energy.
I, for one, hope to see this explode even more, making Broder eat his words. Then I'd like to see Tesla's success diminish big oil.
