Thinks 258

Frederic Filloux on Elon Musk’s attention to detail: “Musk seems to know everything about his rocket. It looks like he can’t be fooled by anyone on the shop floor. He can quote the weight of the enormous launch stand (270 tonnes, in case you wonder), explain with great precision the distribution of the heat load on the vehicle upon reentry in the atmosphere, the challenge posed by the heat tiles, and the difficulty to protect the hinges of the rocket’s tiny wings. He is deep in the trenches as with Tesla during the worst moment of the Model 3 “production hell”.”

David Schmidtz: “We should applaud institutions that encourage people to care for each other. But telling people they are required to tend someone else’s garden rather than their own does not encourage people to care for each other. It does the opposite. It encourages spite.” [via CafeHayek]

Shane Parish: “Ninety percent of success can be boiled down to consistently doing the obvious thing for an uncommonly long period of time without convincing yourself that you’re smarter than you are. “
