The focus of the WEF is so smooth brained.

WEF doesn’t have any power. Poors have this image of covetous Jews running the planet at this meeting. It was literally started so these guys could make their ski trip a deductible business expense
Lol as if they needed the WEF to be able to do that

[Luke Simon, a senior engineering director at Twitter], who owned a portrait of himself dressed as a 19th-century French general, told his team, which managed advertising services, that he wanted to build an "impact-focused, egalitarian and empirical culture, where any team member, with a strong data-driven justification, gets the metaphorical center stage."

These people describe Musk as much more instrumental in setting the long-term vision for the company, including its goal to get to Mars. They say the CEO's daily attention isn't necessary — work flow for Falcon 9 launches, for example, have become fairly standardized over the years — and that when Musk's focus is elsewhere, there's some semblance of calm.
When Musk is hyper-focused on daily operations, it can often lead to extra work — he's inserted himself in projects and demanded changes for sometimes arbitrary reasons, former employees say.
For instance, current and former employees describe times that Musk has deemed certain hardware as having too many tubes, connectors, or wires, or just not generally fitting his preferred design aesthetic. He's demanded that employees rework and simplify systems, leading employees to spend time justifying why certain parts exist or triggering major redesigns and work that can take weeks to accomplish. Sometimes, that work ultimately has to be reversed when components that were discarded ultimately are needed for the final design.
One Friday night, Musk emailed the team working on Crew Dragon — SpaceX's passenger spacecraft — to come in for an urgent meeting the next morning, early on a Saturday. When Musk arrived late, he quickly told the team that the launch timing couldn't slip and they all had to work as hard as possible to stick to the schedule. He also told the team there were too many people working on the program. The brief conversation rattled the team members, who were trying to prioritize executing the mission as safely as possible.

Tesla video promoting self-driving was staged, engineer testifies​


Reuters / Hyunjoo Jin / Published Jan 17, 2023

A 2016 video that Tesla used to promote its self-driving technology was staged to show capabilities like stopping at a red light and accelerating at a green light that the system did not have, according to testimony by a senior engineer.

The video, which remains archived on Tesla’s website, was released in October 2016 and promoted on Twitter by Chief Executive Elon Musk as evidence that “Tesla drives itself.”

But the Model X was not driving itself with technology Tesla had deployed, Ashok Elluswamy, director of Autopilot software at Tesla, said in the transcript of a July deposition taken as evidence in a lawsuit against Tesla for a 2018 fatal crash involving a former Apple engineer...............

Excerpts from the article that you probably didn’t read as you were scouring for headlines:

While many advertising categories across Twitter saw between a 30%–60% drop in the number of active U.S. advertisers last quarter compared to the same quarter in 2021, the number of active U.S. media and entertainment advertisers fell by less than 15%, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Most of these media partnerships are multiyear deals and were brokered before Musk took over Twitter. Some deals, like the NFL's partnership with Twitter, are worth seven figures if they run for their full term, according to two sources familiar with the agreements.
