    1. The pay package Tesla promised to Elon Musk was so large, we had to add an extra dimension to the chart below to display it accurately

      It would be relevant here and should be mentioned that Elon Musk's compensation is conditioned on enormous growth of the company, and he receives nothing if that does not happen.

    1. Elon Musk, with a $2.3 billion package

      More accurately: $0 package, UNLESS value of company goes up 18 fold, to $650 billion, at which point it seems fair to let him have 0.5% of that....

      Makes one wonder if the other pay packages are equally misrepresented, here, and perhaps the entire conclusion is flawed.

    1. If you do the math

      Here is the math: 2020-2023 4 years (Jan 1-Dec 31). 1 million annual is 4 million. That is way more than the 1.7 million

    2. four

      3 million vehicles divided by 4 years divided by 500,000 per factory makes less than two factories in my book.

    1. Given that a lot is happening in Q1, we do not expect to be profitable in the first quarter

      Probably the stocks will drop a lot when announced, buy after that. Should recover in next quarter.

    1. Blockchains are NOT about cutting computational costs (at least relative to centralized servers). Blockchains are about incurring a sacrifice in the form of INCREASED computational costs to achieve a *decrease* in *social costs*.

      <big>评:</big><br/><br/>「区块链以增加计算成本为代价来降低社会成本」,这样的论断让人联想到前几年有关新能源汽车的讨论。新能源汽车的 per unit actual consumption 不一定比内燃机车辆低,但人们寄厚望于它的 social benefit。<br/><br/>我们现在已经知道,区块链会把人类带向一个新世界。试追问:区块链就是这个「世界」本身吗?又或者只是新世界的运行规则?大脑在变得更加聪明,而思维在变得更加固化,已然练就了一种表述:每个世界都要有自己的运行法则。<br/><br/>在上述疑问尚无共识之前,我们不妨先关注一下特斯拉的股价?

    1. At full capacity, the factory is set to produce batteries faster than the rate of bullets leaving a machine gun.

      Okay, I literally cannot imagine this!

    1. So Kick, without any regard to his expensive Tesla Model S, pulled ahead of the swerving car and created a barrier so it could be stopped.

      Incredible!

    1. The Tesla accident in May, researchers say, was not a failure of computer vision. But it underscored the limitations of the science in applications like driverless cars despite remarkable progress in recent years, fueled by digital data, computer firepower and software inspired by the human brain.

      Testing annotations. Interesting statement.
