Day Two – Elon Musk Community Keynote Recap

Written by Sarah Garcia | Sunday, Mar 10, 2013

Yesterday, at SXSW Interactive festival in Austin, Texas, Chris Anderson interviewed Elon Musk in a highly anticipated and extremely well-received keynote session. We don't think there's a lot more to be said after watching this keynote rap recap video by SaulPaul:

Quotes

Chris Anderson: "Do you personally want to step foot on Mars?"
Elon Musk: "I've said I want to die on Mars. Just not on impact."

Anderson: "What is your life like?"
Musk: "I had a lot of accomplishments last year, but it wasn't much fun. In fact, it sucked. So, my New Year's resolution was to have fun. That's kind of why I'm at SXSW."

Anderson: "From Twitter: What has been your biggest mistake?"
Musk: (pause) "So, the biggest in general I've made and am trying to correct, is that put too much weight on talent and not personality. It actually matters whether someone has a good heart."
