Elon Musk.  Inventor, venture capitalist, entrepreneur.

My hero.

Elon Musk is a true man of the world:  born to Canadian-English parents in South Africa, he’s now an American resident and occasional cameo expert in Hollywood movies that has brought us the following:

  • Zip2, a competitor to CitySearch
  • X.com and PayPal:  financial gateways that we all use today
  • Tesla Motors, one of the first car companies in North America to truly focus on battery-operated vehicles
  • SolarCity, the largest solar power operator in the US representing a massive effort to bring affordable solar energy to the United States
  • SpaceX, his private space exploration program

After all he’s done, it’s the last activity that’s truly grabbed my attention and has quickly vaulted him to the top of my list of true heroes when the world needs one.

Seriously.

Elon Musk is going to leverage SpaceX to launch a micro-satellite program that will deliver the Internet on a global scale on a “free and unfettered Internet access for the masses”.

The mainstream media seemed to miss this opportunity to sing similar praises, mainly because they’re crapping their pants.  We now have one of the world’s most daring and innovative entrepreneurs about to become one of the world’s biggest and newest media and internet services companies, literally overnight.

Elon Musk is living proof that anything is possible.
