I was surprised to see that ABC’s news profile for Elon Musk goes back to the year 2000. It’s about 120 articles and videos that review of his professional life from PayPal, on.
The most recent video is about the upcoming SpaceX Dragon launch on Monday, highlighting the fact that the Dragon capsule is Made in America.
Elon Musk giving feedback about the new HBO show Silicon Valley. The Re/code article is a good read and covers feedback from the actors and other Silicon Valley players that attended the premiere. Here’s a couple highlights from Musk in the article:
“None of those characters were software engineers. Software engineers are more helpful, thoughtful, and smarter. They’re weird, but not in the same way,” he opined. “I was just having a meeting with my information security team, and they’re great but they’re pretty fucking weird — one used to be a dude, one’s super small, one’s hyper-smart — that’s actually what it is.”
“The parties in Silicon Valley are amazing because people don’t care about how they’re perceived socially, which I don’t think Mike [Judge] got. Hollywood is a place where people always care about what the public will think of them … and the show felt more like that,” he said. “I’ve lived in Hollywood 12 years, and I’ve never been to a fucking good party.”
Musk reached for a bacon waffle and proclaimed that he would take Judge to Burning Man this year.
You guys may recall that Elon Musk has been planning to go on a road trip with his family. There’s not been an announcement of any sort but his last few Tweets seem to suggest he’s on that trip. But all the photos are from the same place so maybe just a family trip…?
Either way looking forward to the cross-country family supercharger trip. It’s a cool thing to do both as a dad and as an engineer and CEO. He has such a great sense of humor so hopefully there will be a cool video documenting the the Tesla Supercharger Network and Musk’s Clark Griswold side.

I think it’s a good day to reblog this one, Musk is going through the ringer with the press again with his blog response to the Tesla decision in New Jersey.
Elon Musk is still defending his reaction to John Broder’s NYT Model S review. It’s weird how the media thinks Musk is wrong to speak directly, and factually, about his companies and their products. Musk’s Tweets and blog posts are commonly billed by the media as “lashing out” or “striking back” against the media.
Our society is in a sad state of affairs when a person has to consistently defend why they opted to tell the truth, write about the facts, and not be intimidated by the monolith of mainstream media.
The media seems to be the only ones upset by the way Musk communicates.
