Special, in some ways a visionary like Jobs, but Steve didn't do "moonshots", and Steve stressed delivering products on time.Yes, an interesting contrast in a 24 hour period. That Times article helped to send TSLA stock down some 9%, something in that range. Strange times for Mr. Musk, I think over time he and Tesla will get this right and back on track. It could take many years, but ultimately they will succeed (think about Jobs and Apple’s history as a frame of reference).
He’s a special guy, good and bad, faults and all. So was Jobs. Our society advances because of people on the fringe like these individuals.
