It’s amazing there’s ever any sun in Silicon Valley with all those egos eclipsing it. CNN Tech:
On Nikola Tesla’s 158th birthday, it was the effort to build a museum in the influential scientist’s honor that got the gift.
Elon Musk, the magnate and inventor behind electric-car company Tesla Motors, has pledged $1 million to the Tesla Science Center in Shoreham, New York, on the site of Wardenclyffe, Tesla’s only remaining laboratory.
A fundraiser he started on Indiegogo, cheekily named “Let’s Build a G**damn Tesla Museum,” raised a whopping $1.3 million, more than enough to buy the property. Since then, the foundation has been raising the roughly $8 million needed to restore the site and build the museum itself.
Within hours of the comic being posted, Musk, who had donated $2,500 to the initial effort, sent Inman a simple message on Twitter: “I would be happy to help.”
How generous! A tax deductible donation of $1 million worth multi millions in free advertising. If Mr. Musk really wanted to donate he could have done so anonymously; but, exploiting philanthropic endeavors is so much more fun! And really? $2,500 for the initial donation?
I get Telsa was pre-selfie days but c’mon they don’t have any better pictures of him at CNN Tech? Maybe Mr. Musk can kick in another $1 million for some photo restorations? Shockingly finding pictures of Mr. Musk not nearly as challenging. I hate even giving this guy any more “free advertising” but- I really don’t have that many readers so there’s that-and it does support The Sociopathic Business Model™. And, let’s remember to keep tech founders out of politics.
Manipulation & Not Recognizing the Rights of Others
Lack of Shame Remorse or Guilt

Recently the first ex-wife of billionaire Elon Musk, Justine Musk, embarrassingly, without shame, remorse, guilt or accountability took to the internet instructing the world on how to become a billionaire via Quora. According to the LA Times Elon Musk’s growing empire is fueled by $4.9 billion of U.S. taxpayer money in the form of subsidies, a point Justine Musk inadvertently left out on her self-important, self-congratulatory, likely self-posted question and how–to-guide.
As this site has maintained the smoke and mirrors of startup Gods Of Frauds who focus on image and not substance will not be able to sustain their business and this is a lightning rod to the fraud. Meaning the Department of Justice should see this as a trigger for unethical and or illegal behavior corporate behavior and preventatively start looking into Musk’s businesses. It certainly would be insulting & demeaning for the U.S. Government to use our tax dollars not only once ($4.9 billion of subsidized funding) but then again a second time if/when they indict Musk in the future. At this rate though it should be free Telsas for everybody.

Today a story about Elon Musk’s ex-wife Justine Musk came across the Twitter feed via Telsa/Space X Trends:

Opps I guess that messes up her narrative of instructing people how to become a billionaire if she admitted her ex-husband did so unethically without full disclosure.
She was ok when she thought I was exposing her ex-husband’s negative truth he’d rather remain hidden but not ok when exposing her negative truth she’d rather remain hidden. She’s not qualified and lacks credibility to speak about what it takes to ethically become a billionaire which is part of the problem in startups especially but business in general. Just because people like the Musks and Zuckerbergs/Sandbergs have billions doesn’t mean we forget about how they got there.
When professional victims are held accountable with fact based evidence it’s common to insult & demean while manipulating facts. Yes, Justine I know enough about you to know that I want you no where near a business model or politics. Take a seat and stay in your lane because many of us have our billion-dollar blinders off and see you for what you really are Justine.
