Brian and Warren talked in this video about latest developments with Tesla, SpaceX, Boring company and the most important legacy for Elon Musk.
Where Tesla will clearly be in two years is more important than the current quarter.
Where SpaceX and Starlink will be with the Generation 2 satellites.
How Boring Company will change our world.
Elon Musk greatest world-changing impact may not be from Elon’s companies (Tesla, Spacex, Neuralink, Boring Company). Elon will cause something else that will be even bigger.
This impact will be inspiring and training people to become worldchanging entrepreneurs. This would be like magnifying what Bill Hewlett and David Packard did. On January 1, 1939, Bill Hewlett and David Packard founded Hewlett-Packard in Palo Alto, California, United States with an initial investment of US $538. Eventually, their small startup gave birth to America’s Silicon Valley and HP became one of the world’s largest technology companies. This created the modern venture capital industry and hundreds of thousands of technology companies.
When Steve Jobs was in high school, he cold-called Hewlett-Packard’s co-founder Bill Hewlett to request some leftover electronic parts and, to his surprise, Hewlett picked up the phone. Hewlett gave Steve Jobs a summer job at HP.
On December 1, 1913, Henry Ford installed the first moving assembly line for the mass production of an entire automobile. His innovation reduced the time it took to build a car from more than 12 hours to one hour and 33 minutes.
Elon Musk is introducing revolutionary business thinking and processes. Tesla and SpaceX have master Agile for hardware and improved upon mass production. If others learn Elon Musk’s methods in manufacturing, business operations, problem analysis and solution creation then it will not the companies (aka fish) but it will be learning to fish (solve problems and create and grow businesses) like Elon that will be the biggest worldchanging effect.

I would like to think the argument they are putting forward is correct.
But then I imagine Elon getting a job at any large technology company. As an employee.
Not only would he not be listened to, but people in management would actively work against him.
Elon makes everyone look badly.
So the problem is systemic.
Like the beginning of HP and Ford, the originators of companies are usually people who think differently and are more focused on pushing boundaries than playing management politics.
The problem is, one the company is large, the people who get into leadership positions generally played a lot of management politics.
And the focus becomes less on competency and pushing boundaries and more about market share and profit margins.
And then you are a Boeing or General Electric.
Both were phenomenal companies at one point…..
What is the chance that Tesla’s supply chain problem is being exacerbated intentionally?
Does anybody actually want to live on Elon’s Mars?
The *example* of Elon Musk would be more important than his actions? This is just Warren and Brian making up a “discovery” that is simply not there…
I gave the examples of Henry Ford and the founders of Hewlett Packard. I did not say it was a definitive case but a possible scenario.
Nice of you to answer, but..
We actually do not know if Tesla is more efficient due to their agile methods or not. How much is due to the high quality of engineers with great work ethics, and how much is due to having a technical genius at the helm of the company? The agile part could be close to zero…
Plus, we do know that the Tesla, Boring an SpaceX products will have a *huge* impact with their products. So we are comparing a huge known impact with a completely unknown hypothetical future impact.. and we come to the conclusion that the unknown impact “may” be more important? Sorry, does not compute…

Yep it happens to me too , is the moderation an issue ? Or a bug ?
Konwing that is a problem means, I will create all my comments in notepad & copy-paste into the comment box.
With a comment of any length I try to always remember to simply highlight the entire thing and copy it just in case the system messes up I can just go back and click paste and it’s all retrieved.
