I just finished reading his biography that came out recently, it was pretty good. Leads me to believe that he is a very hard working, smart guy - unlike jobs, he actually understands the engineering that goes into his companies which makes him pretty deadly in my opinion.
Why is /g/ so bitter about this guy? It only demonstrates ignorance to compare him to Jobs. Elon is an engineer, and is borderline autistic (like 3 of his 5 kids are autistic). Are you just jealous that he is the rare breed of autist that can handle business decisions as well as computers & math?
>become dotcom millionaire >instead of kicking back as a VC or buying an island... >go for broke trying to make a car company and a rocket company simultaneously >actually succeed >still in early forties
Why the hate? All of his ventures seem to have the general public's best interest in mind. He's smart as hell, and a good businessman. You're mad at him for... hair restoration? Jesus Christ, /g/...
He's not an autist, he's an artist. A flimflam artist.
His companies are unprofitable and rely on government subsidies from politicians whom he schmoozes and gives sweetheart investment deals to. He is brilliant only in tricking Millenials into thinking he's some sort of technical wizard, although given how moronic this generation is the accomplishment is perhaps less than gratifying to him.
>>52239655 He's pushing the boundaries of space, bringing down the costs of getting payload to orbit year by year. He's the only serious player in the electric car market (no hybrids don't count) and he allows his rivals to use his patents. He has ideas in a time in which they can be realised given enough willpower, and engineers willing to dedicate their entire life's work to him. If anything he's a genius.
>>52240470 >engineers willing to dedicate their entire life's work to him more like the first 5 years of their careers to have something on their resume most engineers in elon musks companies burn out pretty quickly and want to leave, which is also why companies like airbus look at spacex with misstrust since they've had very bad experiences with pushing their engineers too much in a business like building rockets
>>52238967 >Leads me to believe that he is a very hard working, smart guy Despite the fact that /g/ likes to shit on Musk and SpaceX/Tesla for being over hyped, he is actually extremely hard working and really knows his stuff. From all of my interactions with him, he's always come off as very smart and knowledgeable.
>>52240545 >most engineers in elon musks companies burn out pretty quickly and want to leave What do you do at SpaceX/Tesla? I'm going to assume you work here since you seem to know a lot about the internal dynamics of our engineering teams, otherwise your opinion seems without merit.
>>52239655 >rely on government subsidies from politicians whom he schmoozes and gives sweetheart investment deals to I think you may have SpaceX or Tesla confused with ULA or any of the major American automakers. Not to say that SpaceX/Tesla don't rely on certain government subsidies or funding but this is a pretty specious argument when compared to the larger industries we operate within.
