Brilliant my ass. He's just a well-schooled salesman who paints himself the next Steve Jobs. Technologically inept to know 99% of the crap he's shoveling is the equivalent of The Jetsons and 1% smart enough to hire talent to tell him that 99% is bull shit, but that 1% can be feasible.
My old boss, Steven P. Jobs, would never pull the asinine stunts this guy continues to rack up. You under sell and over deliver. This guy pictures himself Kurzweill as a visionary salesman. He's attempting to create his own RDF without ever having the charisma to generate one. The Tesla is a hot commodity, for now. He isn't pragmatic. He's not schrewd enough to realize his tepid steps into the waters of business are just temporary, unless he can make a firm footing for those charging stations nation-wide. If not, the Tesla will be known as the biggest electric car bust in history. He needs to focus on a few ideas, refine them and grow them. Instead, he's PT Barnum and that will bring him down.
