I Love This Guy

Watching this first interview below, I kept thinking, “I love this guy.” 😀 I guess there’s much more to say about it, as it’s a very interesting interview, but I can’t replace watching it with a text summary anyway (and I think it is really worth watching), so I’ll just leave it at this: I Love This Guy. 😀

(Note that the video is about a very broad array of things, not just what’s in the title. And I think it’s my favorite video of Elon yet.)

Another video that I’ve now been meaning to share for a few weeks is below. It’s an older one, but there’s a lot of interesting and really funny stuff in there, and I don’t think anything is really irrelevant yet.

One of my favorite segments (as someone who works in the media sector and tries to communicate inspiration rather than fear) is the segment starting about 15:40 in.

Also, the question, answer, and anecdote about 37:25 in (about lights inside the Model S) are quite interesting and funny. Actually, the question and answer right before that segment (about coat hooks in the Model S) is also funny — starting 37:18 in.

And right after that, starting 39:18 in, I think it’s worth listening to Elon discuss hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, which again includes some really funny lines.

Elon also makes some interesting comments on Google’s self-driving technology 6:25 in.

Another quite interesting segment is starting at 24:47, where Elon discusses ways in which cross-pollination between Tesla (or the car industry) and SpaceX (or the space industry) have helped each other.

Lastly, I would just add that I think the interviewer in this video was really good, one of the best I’ve seen interview Elon.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it!! So, we've decided to completely nix paywalls here at CleanTechnica. But...
