I hear rumors other women cry during romantic movies... My girl bursts into tears watching this:

Kidding aside... Elon might be a debatable dude, but this is awesome. Looking forward to the upcoming stuff

Elon Musk's Engineering Masterpiece, eh?
So he did it all alone?

Obviously not. Please don't mistake me for a Musk fanboy.

But I think he is probably doing more engineering than he gets credit for (officially he is the lead engineer). Even though I am not sure if that is not actually slowing the proccess down (him doing to much micro management while working for Tesla, beeing the face of both companies). I don't think his schedule gives the time to seriously work on complex issues.

Still: I am a child of the late 70s and early 80s. I grew up with Lem and Assimov books, with corny covers like this one.

Everybody who works on things that look like that are good people in my book ;)

Oh, those covers !

S.Lem is social philosopher. Read his essays where he explains the logic behind some society constructions he built in "Memoirs of a space traveller" (Diary of Ijon Tichy).

Thanks to "Tau Zero" from P.Anderson (uncredited author of "Avatar") I finally understood intuition behind simple fact: light witnesses all Universe all at once from the beginning to the end as one single instance.

maybe not his engineering but it's doesn't matter imho, he deserves the credit for it because the initial traction to put this to the market was created by him, so without him, nobody will engineer that, in consequence, it did not matter who did the coding/engineering it's just the tool to accomplish smth at this level of abstraction.

btw. of course breaking the windows was on purpose - it's not the software (harder to test - to many variables), I didn't believe that nobody didn't throw anything into those windows to test if they will break or not. imho it was just to make this viral - design of this car also support that hypothesis, it would not make sense to make this to the regular looking car as there will be no incentives to make this viral - was more about the message that they are doing something cool not that they releasing the next car
