I'm excited for it. I know it'll be probably over a decade until completion if it happens at all, but as someone who's lived in the Bay Area my whole life and currently living in San Diego, the idea of the hyperloop is very exciting.

As for Musk, I think he's probably one of the most inspiring people out there.

I encourage anyone with an interest in Elon Musk to check out Wait but why, the writer has been doing running feature on Elon Musk for the past few months.

Part 1 introduces some background on Musk and what he's involved in/how he got there, Part 2 is about Tesla and how they've revolutionized the automobile industry, and Part 3 just came up on Monday detailing SpaceX and what they have planned for the future.

Very interesting reading if you haven't heard about that website or Elon Musk before. All of the other articles are quality reading as well. Well worth the visit.

PS: Be prepared to waste an afternoon reading

Quote by RAB11
I certainly think he's trying to use his wealth to propel humanity forward, and that's very admirable, but has he come up with something as yet inconceivable to mankind the way those others did? As far as I see it he's just improving on current technology and making it more accessible to the masses rather than coming up with something mindblowing himself. I suppose PayPal changed the game but not massively.

He'll certainly be remembered as a massive figure of the 21st century but I don't see him being remembered as a father of science the way the others were. But that could just be be bias because it's hard to place our current figures in the wider pantheon of history while they're still doing what they're doing. I also think that in the age of information these outright geniuses of our time don't seem as impressive because we have the ability to research and understand what they're doing ourselves. A far cry from Tesla putting on an amazing light show at a World's Fair for example.


It's like Watson & Crick and how they're known for the model DNA when it reality it was a group of scientists that you'll never know about and they're just the businessmen who get all the credit

Elon Musk is living embodiment of "Sky's the limit." Very inspirational indeed.

And yes, anything to replace these fucking pathetic "Accelera" trains. My Miata goes faster than these POS. I want to get from DC to Boston in under 2 hours. Make it happen.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I started reading his biography but I quickly realised I didn't like him and stopped. He hasn't revolutionised anything yet but he might eventually.

What's not to like about him?

You're not a computer programmer teacher that gets BTFO'd by 12 year old students by any chance, are you?

No I'm not. It was his personal life mostly. Very odd relationships. He reminds me of Steve Jobs (who in also not a fan of).

I didn't get that at all. I didnt read his biography though, just saw a doc and a good few things here and there over the years, but it just seems to me like he had a rough childhood and some estranged relationships. (but yeah, didnt read it so probably dont know as much)

Steve Jobs on the other hand seemed like a legitimate narcissist, stealing ideas and whatnot from just some accounts I've read way back. More "power-oriented", and not nearly as high-IQ as Musk

the idea seems cool enough (maybe an amusement park ride), but applied to real life, I think most technology is dooming us.

Elon Musk is gonna be pretty GOAT-tier when it comes to creative destruction. It's like hold up, you're already killing our jerbs with the electric cars, let's at least have time to buy them before owning cars is retro

I read that the autonomous is not only going to cost drivers' jobs, but eventually big chunks from hospitality and other industries

yep. I know it seems "old-fashioned" saying things like this about technology seeing as how all kinds of technology has got us to where we are today with transportation, communication and whatnot. it's created a great setting for us as a society to thrive with a market and trade, but a lot of stuff I see going on now doesn't do anything for that purpose. I mean, you have fields and studies in technology that people with thrive in, but how many people does it take to run and make computers?


let alone just concept of keeping the human factor in touch. how lazy and numb do I need to my surroundings? it seems like it takes from individuals to think and be creative on their own.

Channeling some Heidegger there

We already have autonomous Predator missiles/ defense missiles/etc, (that can still be interceded by humans), but only a matter of time until AI ranks humans as we do ants. Apparently a few decades from now, all wars will be fought
by robots

Those are big questions that many such as Musk and whoever put out, and it's still a question of AI's not necessarily linking up with each other and destroying themselves as well, so silver linings from getting rekt by Skynet
