    @theKarlisK I can’t argue with that. I don’t dislike the guy, if anything I lean more towards liking him, but I was wondering if people thought he’s a genius, because expect for PayPal maybe, I don’t think any of his ideas were ‘original’ if you know what I mean.

    @M1sf3t your bang on. Perhaps I should have used ‘visionary’ instead.

    @theKarlisK it’s funny, I though of old Jobsy soon after my first response. I would say though, that Jobs did have some originality in the philosophy that he enforced at Apple (for tech companies that is).

    Musk is Heinlein's Harriman in real life.

    I don't think he's genius, he just comes from money and that usually makes things easier

    @darksideofyay money doesn't make anything easier. If it did, then someone else would be marketing Tesla. There plenty of extremely wealthy individuals in the world, none of who have the vision that Musk had. I look out in the parking lot and I see eight Teslas. I drive on my commute, and I see Teslas. I drove from Dallas, TX to Richmond, VA, and some person with Texas plates is half way across Tennessee in a Tesla. Lots of people have the money to market the Tesla, but only one guy did. They are beautiful cars, completely electric, and outsell Mercedes. That is genius.
