Here are a few responses from some attendees of this TED Talk
Watching history happen in real-time is quite a privilege. I love that they make this freely available.
One thing I admire about Elon Musk is he is the epitome of “Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star”
Thought I’d comment on something different – I could see Elon getting emotional again about the things he fundamentally feels. Truth in science, but also in all things; getting the questions right; the meaning of life; and being positive about the future for everyone. He controls it well. Better than I can. I couldn’t sit in front of that many people and keep it all in.
I respect Chris who asks many more right questions than wrong, in my opinion.
I wish world leaders would fight for a positive future. It feels like they are so often trying to do the opposite.
I believe Elon is honestly doing more to make a better future than any world leader or government. He is only one guy. Imagine the good that could happen if everyone applied his basic principles.
Such an inspiration for current leaders and future generations… his wealth doesn’t take how humble and down to earth he is. the world needs more people like Elon Musk!
You can feel Elon’s confidence saying he knows more about manufacturing than virtually anyone alive
I have been watching very Elon Musk interviews since 2013, and this one is among the best. The overwhelming impression for me from all the cues in his interviews is that he is scrupulously honest, cares deeply about humanity, and is massively driven to make the future better. It amazes me that there are still people out there who consider him a liar and a fraud.
leading by example is so rare these days, calling the shots and excepting the hardest tasks. so honored to be alive and living in real time with ; firsthand with people like Elon in a world of so much mistruth deceit and disarray
Good interview, Elon is an amazing person, and we are privileged to have him around.
Of all the people who are in a position of leadership in the world, Elon is the first in a long time (and only one) who embodies hope.
