    Not willing to knowingly supply trading bots with fodder, so am starting this thread with a modestly cryptic title and am placing it Off Topic....


    am on the road now; 1,800 miles into the 3,800 back to work, and hauling 25,500 pounds, so it's a slow slog. But I did notice that the above-mentioned person's twitterfeed shows she no longer is employed by TM.

    Has anyone any insight into this?

    She is now heading to Salesforce. That occurred before the DNS hijack / hacking that occurred over the weekend.

    "She", I thought.

    Also, some context:
    That suggests she felt positive about her time with Tesla.

    Formerly known as Chris. She is a he. Or he is a she. Perspective I guess. I thought it was a guy when I saw a photo once but I guess he changed his gender recently.

    So 'she' would be the correct pronoun.

    (And imo, gender changes don't fall under the off-quoted 'public's right to know'. If she chose to make it a public talking point, then that's her decision. But I'm not aware that she chose to put this out there for public discussion.)

    I don't know how these things work. I live in a bubble.

    Ok you're right. I live in a bubble and I'm also an internet troll. Actually , what best may describe me is a photo of my insights personality profile thinge:

    Top down of course. But I bet you could guess that.

    I can't help feeling that threads discussing individuals should be conditional on participants revealing their own names, location and employer.....

    99.9% of the time, I couldn't agree with you more, Nigel. In this case, the asterisks were there as an attempt to keep a potentially sensitive - and possibly negative - news item regarding TM from bot-searches. I had no suspicion this thread would descend to where it did.
    Anyway, I'm now another 300 miles further down the road, so my next question is - has anyone knowledge of a replacement in place?

    (Maybe I'll learn the answer in Whitehorse, YukonT, my next stop with a Starbucks....) :smile:

    Who says a replacement is necessary? Maybe she got laid off. That was my take on it by the tone of the tweet.

    She's regarded highly in the valley. My wife says that Kristin's already been cracking the whip at her new (and my wife's) workplace.

    Maybe your wife can find out some juicy details about the departure. Or maybe since tesla serverely underpays their software engineers (per glassdoor, wow numbers are REALLY on the low side), it was a no brainer...

    But it's not like people don't know what they'll be making BEFORE they take the job, so...

    There is also the possibility that the security has been vastly improved, and the job is done.

    Seems like a "firefighter", put out the majority of the f*i*r*e*s, then leave the mop up crew to put out any hot spots, and move on to the next situation.

    I'm sure she was well compensated - but that isn't usually the driver for people at her level. The challenge, the ability to affect permanent change ... those are the things that I'm sure would attract someone at her skill level. And perhaps she accomplished what she set out to do at Tesla & was ripe for a new challenge. Can totally understand that.
