Tech billionaire Elon Musk considers the three years of 2017-2019 to be the most difficult period, related to electric vehicle production delays.
“I consider this period of my life three years of hell, the longest period of excruciating pain in my life.” Musk said at the TED Conference on April 14 in New York.
At that time, he said, he mainly “sleeped” for months in the car production lines of the company Tesla to fix unsatisfied parts. “I ran around like a madman, in every corner of the factory to work with engineers to fix the problem. People also tried harder when they saw me sleeping on the floor, not in an ivory tower. there,” Musk said. “We had no other choice, because everything was on the verge of bankruptcy at that time.”
This is not the first time he talked about hard time This is from Tesla. The Model 3 is seen as Musk’s bet on turning Tesla into a mainstream automaker. However, the manufacturing process was more complicated than expected. As reported by CNBC At the beginning of 2018, one of the reasons why the car was behind schedule was because the battery production did not take place on schedule. Batteries for electric vehicles needed high precision, while Tesla’s technology at that time could not be produced by automatic lines, so the output was low.
Also at the TED conference, Elon Musk admitted he was “not sure” whether it was possible to buy the social network Twitter. However, if successful, he wants to build the foundation as an “important square in the land of free speech”. The US technology billionaire emphasized that his intention to acquire Twitter is not to make money. “My motivation is to maintain a trustworthy and inclusive public platform – which is critically important to the future of civilization,” he said.
Musk assessed that Twitter needs to have different levels of content management, such as violent content that needs to be tightly controlled and comply with the regulations of countries. However, the platform also needs to have an open and accessible algorithm that makes it easy for users to state their personal views.
He admits that even if he bought Twitter, the company would still have flaws. “I assume people will still blame me for everything. If I buy Twitter and something doesn’t go right, it’s 100% my fault,” he said. When asked if there is a “plan B” if the Twitter acquisition fails, Musk said he has “a lot of ideas” but declined to elaborate.
Musk also mentioned Asperger syndrome – a form of autism spectrum disorder – that he is suffering from. “I think everyone’s experience is going to be somewhat different. But I personally realize that social signals are not intuitive to me. So I see myself as just a very literate person who doesn’t understand what’s going on. hey, I guess,” Musk said at TED.
He said he tends to take things literally with the words used by the other person, not the other way around. He also admits it takes a long time to understand the nuances of human communication. “Because of that, I was bullied a lot. I didn’t have a happy childhood,” Musk added.
