I really have no opinion one way or the other, and am not in a position to have a negative or positive view since I do not know him personally. That said, I poke at him often because he represents the apotheosis of the tech titan to me and is thus a figurehead for technology in general. I spend a lot of my time here writing about about all the idiotic things the technorati do or say or believe, and since he is a leader of that elite group he gets caught in the crossfire.

But mostly I just think his name is funny, Elon Musk. Say it out loud like ten times, I swear you will start laughing after two or three repetitions. The poor guy, can you imagine how much he must resent his parents for that name? And it so much sounds like a mustachioed 1970s porn star name. Elon Musk, the man with the scent no woman can resist..lol! And dude, he looks exactly like Captain Jack Harkness from Dr. Who, character actor John Barrowman. I mean it is fucking scary. I swear they gotta be twins or something, it is really crazy.

In any event, great question and thanks for asking!
