This is posted elsewhere here on the forums, yet still worth mentioning here:
Elon Musk interviewed by CNBC.
I have held a high regard for Elon Musk, and his achievements (mainly with electric cars, and to some extent with solar power), but after watching this, I have elevated him to permanent divine status.
Not only is he doing the right thing, but he is so genuine and natural, to the bone. For something he doesn’t know, he says „I don’t know“, instead of pretending or talking around the subject. He is so non-boasting and humble, and very respectful towards everyone, even competitors and people who try to stop him and his efforts. No name calling or ridiculing of even the worst of haters.
Often in an interview or other video, you want to fast forward, or get annoyed by the way the interviewer(s) try to control the outcome from a script - not one single time did I wish to skip anything here.
Well worth 21:30 minutes of your life to watch.
Subjects cover the whole range, more or less, from Tesla, Gen III/Gigafactories, patents „release“, solar city, spaceX, AI, investments and more, pretty nicely summed up.
What we see here is a person speaking honestly and sincerely from his heart.
Well played, Elon, well played, although it’s obviously neither play nor acting.
