Last night’s #cybertruck launch by @Tesla is the quintessential example of “founder authority”

Only founders like @elonmusk, Jobs, @travisk, etc can launch products so spectacularly inspired & ground breaking

the hired, tired & uninspired CEOs (@tim_cook) release iPhone 17💤

The hired, tired & uninspired CEOs of ancient car companies watched last night & lamented “we had a similar design in 1998!” Never realizing that ideas mean nothing & taking risk is EVERYTHING

They’re all cowards holding back humanity because they don’t want to lose their jobs

WRT the broken windows, if it’s not obvious to everyone that unfortunate “FAIL!” Is the price you pay for taking bold risks like @elonmusk does.

... the price of E’s risk taking is that humanity is rooting for him even in “failure”


How many people will tune into the next @telsa or @SpaceX launch after last night?!?! EVERYONE!!!

Mission accomplished.

congrats @elonmusk, you knocked it out of the park last night.

If you care about the future of the planet and you want to support innovation there is one thing for you to do right now: PUT DOWN A DEPOSIT... TODAY!!!

... and go buy a Model 3 while you wait.

It’s the greatest car ever.
