    Man, I hope someone puts up the hilights here - I'm not able to listen to the whole thing - but it seems less like a shareholder meeting and more like a memoir of Tesla from the begining to now...but hey we're only 1.5 hours into it - who knows what the next few hours will bring o_O

    Agreed. Oddest shareholder meeting I have ever seen.

    Actually, I'm finding the history fascinating, and hearing about their thought processes and how they handled the failures made me even happier that I'm buying a Tesla.

    Sure . . . but that's not what you normally do in a shareholder meeting. Most investors are wanting info pertaining to products in the pipeline, margins, deliveries on track or behind, etc. etc. Each to his own.

    Plus, as any Tesla/Musk fan, we've already heard about the history of Tesla hundreds of times over many events. What we don't know is the future!

    Well, good for you and the others. I've found it very interesting. I guess I'm not like most investors.

    A very strange account of Tesla's origins.

    Model 3 wont be free supercharging unless you buy a package, but will still be cheaper than filling up on gas. Looks like pay per use or one fee for time life use.

    Good for you, but will you still find it very interesting if they talk about the entire history of the company again next year?

    The length of these question is ridiculous

    TMC was just mentioned by Elon. I suppose they do read this forum.

    It is a little less the length than the amount of lecturing/bragging/posing by the questioner. Feel bad for Elon.

    That meeting was weird. I wonder how the Tesla investors felt about it.

    Apparently the board meeting folks were annoyed.

    You think so? Why would you say that? (btw, I agree with you) I'm a small share holder in my 401K so there is no real liability for me, however if I had millions invested I would have a puzzled look on my face.

    No one ever asks any of the meaty technical questions from the forums. But at least he acknowledged they have people reading these forums.

    The density of good questions was so low. Such an inefficient use of Elon's (and other's) time. Here I would define good as of concern to a large percentage of shareholders. I had hoped that some of the tmc questions would have been asked. Did I miss something?

    He mentioned it a couple times. Along with the all hands meeting after that.
