Last spring I went on my first visit to the US. And my first stop was, completely unexpected for me, Austin. And SXSW.
There are lots of things to say about Texas and Austin and about the days of madness around SXSW. But one of the things I will remember was the keynote from Elon Musk (actually an on stage interview).
The feeling of being in the presence of what future generation will consider visionary and greatness was palpable. I think Elon Musk will be the Nikola Tesla of our generation (hopefully with more financial success).
As a funny thing, they say that Robert Downey jr.’s Tony Stark (IronMan) was modeled after Elon Musk. Also, you can follow a Twitter parody account which, from time to time, actually says funny one liners: BoredElonMusk
Take an hour and see the video below, it’s worth it. This is the man that started PayPal, sold it and invested two really disruptive businesses: Tesla and Space X. He’s the CEO of both and he wants to die on Mars, after living there the last years of his life.
