Musk is, imo, the most fascinating person in the world. He can be "out there" sometimes (he aims to reduce the "risk of human extinction" by establishing a human colony on Mars) but proves that being "out there" can be a very good thing. Some of his personal views are controversial. But while our government was running in circles trying to coordinate relief efforts in Puerto Rico, Musk put up a solar farm and got a hospital up and running before the government even figured out who's on first.
His bio is an amazing read. (Musk was severely bullied throughout his childhood, and was once hospitalized when a group of boys threw him down a flight of stairs and then beat him until he lost consciousness.)
He is definitely on my bucket list as someone I'd love to do lunch with.
The whole Starman thing just rocks - genius/crazy with a sense of humor.
"Some customs agencies are saying they won't allow shipment of anything called a 'Flamethrower,'" Musk tweeted on Friday night. "To solve this, we are renaming it 'Not a Flamethrower.'"
