Deux You See It?

The Tesla Master Plan, Part Deux is out (and if anyone is a hot shot, it’s Elon), and if you haven’t read it, read it. Since they’re nearing completion of part one and the media attacks against Tesla have just begun to warm up, the time is ripe. I can’t say I’m surprised about the overall plan because it makes perfect sense to me. I had anticipated in a small way some of the consequences of a self-driving car, but I hadn’t considered hiring out my Tesla to go drive people around, driverless, Uber-style.

A Closed Letter to Tesla and Elon Musk

Dear Mr. Musk, Up until now you’ve been a curiosity. An interesting little distraction. You’ve made sexy cars for the small percentage of us who can afford them. We like that you chose to make them electric because of what you’ve been able to do with their performance. We like fast, powerful toys that respond instantly to our whims. Environmentally friendly, you say? Pshaw! A very clever marketing strategy indeed. We commend you for your level of deceit. For that you are almost worthy of being called one of us.
