If he bought the guy off, an equivalent bot would no doubt be online again in short order. ADS-B data is public. And the dude wants an internship as a reward for letting the world stalk the CEO? Yeah. Hire that guy. :roll:

Re: Elon Musk

Yes, hire him. Then find out what he does and doesn't like, pay him enough that he'll never quit, but make his entire working career miserable.


I'm pretty sure that someone did that to me. :(

Neuralink is another prime example of a Tesla vaporware product that's hyped as revolutionary but is behind competitors.

There seems to be some confusion as to Musk's credentials - Musk has zero engineering education and experience despite the fan base attributions of genius- he is however, probably the greatest marketer since Donald Trump, or P.T. Barnum.

The sooner Tesla quits going through it's Elon Musk driven identity crises - the better off the brand will be.

Only engineers can be geniuses, eh ?
Do you think that only engineers can have a science background ?
Do you think that a topic can only be learned in school ?

You don't need an engineering degree to be an engineer. I doubt Thomas Edison had an electrical degree either. A degree is just a shorthand way for an employer to check competency. Doesn't tell you about their actual skill.
