TED: Elon Musk: The mind behind Tesla, SpaceX, SolarCity, PayPal
Inspiring, visionary talk – as the host notes, Elon Musk has a brilliant mix of technology, design business – & the audacity to gamble EVERYTHING on his vision – over and over again… and WIN!
CA: My theory is that you have an ability to think at a system level of design that pulls together design, technology and business, so if TED was TBD, design, technology and business, into one package, synthesize it in a way that very few people can and — and this is the critical thing — feel so damn confident in that clicked-together package that you take crazy risks. You bet your fortune on it, and you seem to have done that multiple times. I mean, almost no one can do that. Is that — could we have some of that secret sauce? Can we put it into our education system? Can someone learn from you? It is truly amazing what you’ve done.
