“I’m trying to allocate my efforts to that which I think would most affect the future of humanity in a positive way,” Musk once said. Not a bad goal at all.
In recent news, Musk has hired Apple’s chief Mac engineer to lead vehicle development at Tesla. Musk appears to have survived a scare in which a Tesla Model S caught fire earlier this month, raising questions about the safety of electric vehicles. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration won’t investigate after determining the fire wasn’t caused by a safety defect.
