Andrew Yang Credits Elon Musk As A Major Inspiration

August 11th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Yesterday, Elon Musk made the day of another high-profile fan who has been motivated by him. Whether Elon is replying to random tweets, sharing something a fan made, or simply encouraging them as he did for me last year, Elon has always put people first, and I think that is why he is so well loved


Elon Musk, The Elder Statesman Of The Auto Industry?

August 5th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Ah, the callow and cocksure Elon Musk, the bad boy gamer from Silicon Valley, the brash, iconoclastic upstart who dares to challenge the time-tested titans of transportation! Would that be the same Elon Musk who recently became the longest-serving CEO in the global auto industry


Elon Musk Talks Tesla Terawatt-Hours. We Run Some Numbers.

July 31st, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

At CleanTechnica, we have already written a few articles about this, but until the Q2 investor call, it was just a theory. In fact, even some of my colleagues considered it bullish and so in some ways I consider this to be my theory and am extremely stoked that Elon confirmed it and that this will actually happen. My writing on this started in 2018 with the article “The Future We Need — From The Tesla Gigafactory To A Chain Of Terafactories.”

What Do Elon Musk, Frodo Baggins, & Luke Skywalker Share In Common?

June 29th, 2019 | by Steve Bakker

After reserving a Model 3, I streamed every video about Tesla and Elon Musk I could get my hands on. As the information regarding Mr. Musk's background and career came streaming in, it suddenly dawned on me that the man had completed the classical tale of "The Hero’s Journey." Are you familiar with the myth? If you don’t think you are, you actually are. You just haven’t gotten around to reading any Joseph Campbell and putting a name to it. If that is the case, may I fill you in on the myth and how well Elon fits into it

What’s Up With The Twitter Turf War Over Tesla & Elon Musk?

June 24th, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

Why has Twitter become such a battleground over Tesla? Amit Katwala writes in Wired UK, "There’s no reason why a car company should be so divisive, but the warring tribes of Tesla fans and [Tesla haters] speak to human nature, the cult of celebrity, and the polarizing impact of the social media echo chamber." Others believe it gets to something deeper. More on that in a moment

Elon Musk appeared today at E3 (a video game conference) in a talk with Todd Howard and Geoff Keighley.

He may or may not have been digging around in his pocket to find his bowtie, but even without it, Elon Musk's jacket started looking a bit more like a Tuxedo when a shareholder from the audience dropped the last question of the day. The shareholder in question asked if Tesla had any plans to make an aquatic car, and Musk started giggling as if he had been waiting for this exact question all day


Some Thoughts On Elon Musk’s Emails To Employees — & The Media + Wall Street’s Response

May 27th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Last week, the world that follows Tesla flipped out a bit due to an Elon-to-staff email that got leaked. To be frank, there was nothing especially interesting in the email, which is why we didn't cover it earlier. However, people keep referencing it in comments, and both the media and Wall Street blew it way the f*** out of proportion, so I'm addressing it this article
