    Having Tesla on your resume will help.  

    Tech guy sitting on his yacht employ zero manufacturing jobs.  Tech guy building cars employ 45000 jobs.  But business is business, not a charity.

    Elon Musk's Tesla to cut about 3,000 jobs as cars 'too expensive'

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-46919489
    Tech guy trying to run a manufacturing business.  It's not going well.  He really needs someone else.  I wonder what jobs these people do that he doesn't need done anymore?
    I'm sure he has quite a few working for him.  Manufacturing guys that is


    Yes...working for him. Dude is a genius and amazing in many ways. He still has some short comings. Just read some articles about his plants...the hours..the injuries. They lack manufacturing experience.

    Odd...a lot of Twitter users are creating accounts using Mastodon. Here is Musk poking fun at that using Paul Krugman as an example.

    Mastodon seems like an odd platform. Not interested.

    So I questioned why he laid off so many workers so quickly without a proper analysis of the company.  I'm sure layoffs were needed but the way he did it didn't make sense.

    Now they realize they messed up and need some of those people back, lol?

    Look, if it works and they make money, good on him.  The way he's going about it though isn't smart...

    I've used mastodon in the past.  Much easier to tailor content and can be better from a privacy, not data mining point of view.  I gave it up along with all social media besides this damn site though.

    Well the free speech absolutist lasted long. 

    He’s just a Republican in Republican clothes. Funny thing, his space x needs big govt spending to survive and Tesla needs climate fearing libs to grow. How does he rationalize? Money money money.

    there was this "trend" of people with blue check marks were changing their twitter names to Elon Musk, so they could drive the point home that his $8 verification "idea" would be fraught with people posing as real people, and he then made a "policy" that "impersonation will result in permanent suspension". And hence, a few people got banned for not changing their names back.
