    Seems to me that Karpathy is a much better fit than Lattner. Given the slow pace of AP2 improvement, it just doesn't appear that Lattner was doing a good job. I'm glad that Tesla is proactive in making changes no matter the optics.

    Agreed that based on CV, Karpathy seems a better fit, but the six month tenure for Lattner isn't encouraging. Possibly he was hired in desperation. Given his tweet, I'd say it wasn't his choice to leave.
