Comment Re:Zuckerberg created one thing, Bezos two (Score 2) 118

Musk was there for the founding of Paypal. Paypal was a .boom winner. He's nothing more than a lottery winner who then invested ... and by invested I mean lobbied congress for subsidies for Tesla, SpaceX and SolarCity. He didn't create any of them, he funded people who knew what they were doing to create those companies using money he got by dumb luck.

What do you mean by this? At least SpaceX was born out of an economical analysis on the board of a plane bound from Russia to US. Of course, he started hiring specialists ASAP, but these very specialists contradict your claims that he "didn't know what he was doing".

There's nothing wrong with software. Without software, the productivity of this world would drop like a brick. Numerical methods, advanced search algorithms, digital control systems etc. are all-important today for the things we do.

Having said that, when discussing such vital components of modern world, Facebook it ain't.
