Tesla's Wild Ride by Michael V. Copeland, CNN:


I have to say, that this is the harshest column that I've read about Martin. I believe it is unfortunate that there is still a dust-up about this, but Martin created a blog that flamed (and still flames) Elon Musk right after his ouster, causing an incredible amount of bad press for Tesla Motors, so I suppose payback was inevitable.

I've seen this same situation in a few start-ups, and so few individuals, who are capable of launching a start-up, are truly capable of taking the development all the way to production. Add to that the complexity of creating an automobile, as opposed to software, a circuit board or some hand held device. Perhaps we should be impressed with all that Martin did accomplish, but, unfortunately, his website took this whole situation down the wrong path.

which is it? Was Martin the driver or Elon?
Well, we know Martin wasn't the driver when his Roadster was crashed :p
Elon knew this was going to be a PR nightmare and still does. Why not bring Martin on board as a consultant or at least keep him as the PR guy or something... Get the feeling this will be Steve Jobs all over again?
