The future for Tesla, Space X and SolarCity are yet to be determined. But if Elon Musk's vision and his genius become and are a reality, he will have been the catalyst for a bright new future for the human race. That includes both here on earth and on the other planets. Maybe not, but don't believe he is in it primarily to exploit others or just for wealth. As a disrupter, he is fun to warch.
roflmao.. that reminds me of my old CO.. his callsign was "Rex"... Except he wasn't that moronic.. the CO before him was though.... caused half the command to get themselves OTH via whatever means they could. Drunk on duty, drugs, theft... I've never seen a command with such low morale...
Rex's reason for the name was "Small arms, big head"....
I'm not sure if the idea here is that the CEO is ripping off Elon Musk, or that he *is* Elon Musk. If it's the latter, I'm not sure Scott's being entirely fair.
Aside from the fact that the Hyperloop concept itself is a little more involved than what the CEO describes, Musk himself has a bit more credibility than that. Tesla and SpaceX (not to mention PayPal) are very promising companies with practical technological innovations under their belts. (Tesla cars are on the road, and SpaceX craft have been to space. Had you asked me when he started them if I thought either one of those would actually happen, I'd have said no. And I'd have been wrong - they're credible companies now. Now, the only remaining question is whether or not they're viable money-making business enterprises.)
