What is your report on elon musk?

This failure to launch is indicative of his year.

He has had an extraordinary year , but every time there is an extreme of success, ever something that goes wrong.

Basically, he has had the most interesting, successful your that anybody has had.

I have been a critic at times, but the fact is this guy has jumpstarted innovation, he seems to be impervious to criticism.

He is impervious to criticism, he has time started innovation, he is still dreaming back.

What is your prescription for 2014 for elon musk?

Ideally for him, tesla will start to make more inroads.

A string of success, buying more and more cars, better, and better.

Do you think it will grow into its valuation?

Good point.

I'm not sure about that.

Let's not talk crazy here.

There was a lot of promise, a lot of dreams built into tesla.

I think we will see with elon musk -- the question is whether he will get bored by his current companies and start a fourth or a fifth.

Some interesting perspective.

I am fascinated by the year of elon musk.

He is on the covers of all these magazines.

He seems like an interesting guy.

The world's most interesting man.

[laughter] i don't know if you can use them for that.
