My beef with Musk

Recommended Posts

Some watching Musks Twitter feed on the day of the rescue may have seen the post below it - was there about 1/2 a day -

 

Rumour has it Musk has something to do with electric vehicles -

 

Next morning, it had been deleted! No comment, no reply, no nothing - just deleted. HTF does he 'know' I am lying?

 

Anybody want to ask me if I have had a gutful of the IP mafia?

I don't understand 

I invited Musk to see an EV driveline I have built - so his Thai trip would not be a complete waste of time -

 

My post just got deleted w/o reply or comment. To my mind, that defies logic.  91169748_ScreenShot2018-07-18at11_06_57.png.91cb85f2f47ed3c8d5184077ffeed6b8.png

Doesn't look like inappropriate spam to me at all. Defies logic.

I would imagine the guy has loads of people with great new business ideas, pestering him every single day.  And he didn't come to Thailand to seek new business ideas, only to help the kids.  So you shouldn't take it personal.

Absolutely true.

I don't take it personally. However, it defies logic to ignore someone that says they can reduce your car cost by 15%, when your company is on shaky ground. (sacked 9%, closed some solar operations, etc etc) And where did he go from Thailand? To Shanghai, to negotiate building Teslas' China factory.

& successful businessmen are often known to look under every rock for new opportunities to improve their product, save money, etc etc, no?

As student rep on the NSW branch of SAE Australasia, I arranged Sarichs' talk at UNSW - maybe late '73. At the pyramidy building top campus. Forgot it's name. But he may not be well now - wrote to him a month ago, new EV driveline etc etc etc - no reply. Or he may be dead?

How would he know if he could / couldn't afford to 'buy me off', if he has not asked 'how much'? 

Direct cost saving on a 30,000 US car (which he doesn't make) would be of the order of 4,500 to 5,000 - not counting benefits of weight, friction, battery (smaller, or more range with std batt), handling, packaging & NVH reduction.
