Twitter's code of conduct and them banning users who used racial slurs doesn't matter tbh. The perception is that twitter is now a place for trolls, and advertisers wantn one of that.
The perception is: that twitter is no longer a mouth piece of one particular
ideology/ political narrative, and that’s why said (certain) companies are pulling out. Here in NL there hasn’t been any sort of an exodus in advertisers, because most companies advertising on it here aren’t complete ideologues.
And again right... I’m totally on board with twitter going under
Because Yes. In an capitalist/ actual free market system a company should
survive on its own merit, rather then simply being a propaganda outlet for others...and if it can’t, then twitter in its current form deserves to die, The question remains if Musk can reform it/ safe it in time, or if it ends up dying in his arms, I'm down either way.
In theory I would agree, but printing out code? That makes no sense. No one does that except for when they're turning in assignments for college.
Why? and No? My bassist works for a software-tester and they print out code all the time
. Its just easier to read sometimes. Same reason why Architects, including me and the company I work for, print out BIM sheets instead of scroll-plowing through it on a screen. Screens/code engines are good for writing/zooming in on detail, not neccesairly (helicopter) reviewing.
That's because that's what Elon Musk is. The hard work / heavy lifting has always been done by others, whether that is Tesla's engineers or other people smarter and more experienced than him.
This is demonstrably untrue, same as:
be born in a wealthy family that allowed them to take those entrepreneurial risks
His "rich daddy" was defacto pennyless in the 90's, the man slep on the couch in the small office he and his brother rented, and had to shower at the YMCA during the setup of Zip2. You can also ask any random Space X employee on whether or not absurd the idea that musk is somehow chilling in his offices smoking cigars all day pretending to run these companies has any actual truth to it. You're just coping here/reitterating the hate-articles that popped up about him en masse a year back.
Take the Paypal sequence:
- Co-founded x.com, but was removed from CEO position
- Returned as CEO when x.com merged with Confinity
- Was kicked out again when the merged company didn't have a clear business model
- After he was kicked out, the merged company then became Paypal, under Peter Thiel's leadership
So he cofounded it (x, paypal), got bought out in a power struggle, had to be brought back in, and was then, when the company regained traction again, ousted out ( which recently was haemorrhaging subscribers now after the whole “misinformation” debacle).
You’ve not in any way “debunked” his work ethic or company running competence there m8, quite the opposite, just saying. ^
Tesla was actually founded by two other people in 2003, but Elon Musk invested millions during series A. Elon then sued to become CEO of Tesla in 2009.
Seeing a pattern here?
Two other people went to the Chamber of Commerce to register the Tesla company, did f all except fundraise for a year before Musk bought in, who within 2 years pumped out the Roadster, and basically pulled the company from there on out to where it is today.
So far the only “patterns” you’ve demonstrated are:, 1, There's power struggles happening in companies, 2 Musk’s continuous ability to, through conscientiousness, competence, sheer hard work/intelligence, create or uplift companies/ products to the next level.
Well, yes. Billionaires and the ultra-wealthy are part of the world's villains. No one accumulates that much wealth without stepping on millions of people.
I don't know why you would defend a billionaire tbh. They're not on your side. You and I share more in common, since we're normal ordinary people.
Well I can tell you why I defend Musk as an "Evil billionaire" as opposed to say, The Clintons or the Biden's or the Bushes of this world, not saying you are defacto defending those perse, but in our back & forths you do generally favor politics over business.
1, He is, despite the Cope, very much self made. Yes, Nobody achieves everything in life all on its own, but to write down his acchievements as him just being a richboy leech is, to quote Hensmon a truly pathetic attitude, and very weak minded. Not to mention intellectually dishonest.
2, He doesn't take money away from you by Fiat/Force but lets you decide yourself if you wish to use, invest or buy his products.
3, He doesn't invest/ waste your
tax money into failed projects/companies or initiatives, instead using his own, to tangibly improve the world.
4, He actually
achieves said improvement/things, instead of just chruning out empty promises and feel good rethoric for his followers, who's money he demands.
The idea that all humans are the same is a nice one, but misguided/untrue. It takes, a special kind of mind to do what he did/does and if that wasn't the case every or most "ordinairy people" would have done it already before him.
