Elon Musk ponders Tesla’s Future
A few years ago, one of my Silicon Valley clients told me a story about his son, who at the time, was working for Tesla. He said Tesla had one of the worst working conditions in tech because everyone was nasty, testy, back stabbing and paranoid. I didn’t pay much attention to what was being said because I thought the son was just making excuses for not succeeding on the job.
Turn the clock forward a few years and we are reading about a Tesla disgruntled employee who reportedly sabotaged the company a few days ago. CEO Elon Musk sent an email to employees Sunday night saying that someone had broken into the company computer system and this could interrupt the production of the new Tesla Model 3 electric car.
You can read more about the Tesla mystery story here. I just wanted to add my two cents about the drama that takes place in some of the most successful tech companies. In the infamous words of Joan Rivers, “Grow Up!”
I often wonder how some of the most successful tech companies ever got to where they are today with the nonsense that takes place everyday. If someone isn’t stealing company secrets, then someone else making sexually harassing remarks, or stealing large sums of money out of petty cash.
I hear horror stories several times a week about how some of these tech geniuses behave in public. It’s like they have zero social skills. I deal with a lot of young people who made it big fast. I think they need to have their mommies with them all the time to tell them right from wrong. Why would anyone want to hurt Elon Musk? Maybe it has something to do with all the people he has been firing lately just to turn a profit.
There has to be a better way.
I post a DigiDame every day from my IPhone and the type comes out smaller, lighter and in all caps. I have been posting for six years and this only started with a software upgrade a few months ago. I expect to pay for your service. I must cure this situation. Thank you!

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit … and their real life partners
I just finished reading a story in Engadget, a tech site, that St. Joseph Hospital in France, uses virtual reality as a way to get Emergency Room patients to tolerate pain without taking addictive painkillers.
St. Joseph students designed a VR program that helps patients relax and tolerate severe pain. Patients simply put on VR goggles and immerse themselves into games and programs. The students truly believe patients can be distracted and won’t ask for pain-free medication.
Dr. Olivier Ganasia, the doctor in charge of the ER, said, “using VR during treatment is like hypnosis.” The French believe this is a way to reduce the opioids crises.
There is no question that everyone wants a drug-free society, but can we really depend on VR?
I asked my doctor friend (gastroenterologist in Georgetown) his opinion and this is what he said, ” If I am in horrible pain from an accident or kidney stones, etc., please give me a narcotic and keep the goggles off my head.
“It may prove to be a wonderful treatment for pain, but please do the studies on someone else. I am not particularly worried about opioid overdose or addiction from pain meds given once in the ER. For chronic pain, maybe it will be the way to go in the future.”
The future of VR is still unknown.
