I am reading The Founders, its story about building PayPal. One thing that stays all across the chapters is insanity. All these founders, be it Peter Thiel, Elon Musk, Max Levchin, Luke Nosek, or early members, were insane. They had a determination and vision of building big.
The current x.com domain of Elon Musk has been around since 1999, a fintech platform that Elon Musk wanted to build. In 2023, Twitter is its incarnation.
The earlier version of x.com was merged withPaypal. The combined entity got later sold to eBay. How insane is that? Is Elon Musk leftover aspiration is V2 x.com?
