I dunno... I'm beginning to think HN sees this as hype=overhype.

On failing... thats unconsciounable. Of any place, this should be the site where we don't hate on failure. Failure is a definitive property of risk. Risk is the one thing that makes Musk unique, at the scale he's acting on. He puts everything on the line for a chance at an ambitious goal. This is exactly the ethic I come to this site for.

If you’re building a web app you can fail upwards until you find success. If you’re building a car and you fail people die.

Its like the difference between any random saas and Theranos.

And if you succeed in producing an exceptionally safe car, you save many lives.
