Tesla and SpaceX workers should put in 80 to 100 hours a week to "change the world", Elon Musk has said. The technology entrepreneur admitted that there were "way easier places to work" than his companies, adding: "Nobody ever changed the world on 40 hours a week." Asked how many hours a week were necessary, Mr Musk said: "Varies per person, but about 80 sustained, peaking above 100 at times. Pain level increases exponentially above 80." Mr Musk's comments attracted criticism from commentators who suggested that overwork could lead to decreased productivity. He is the founder and chief executive officer of several companies including SpaceX, which is working on building disposable rockets, Tesla, which designs and builds electric cars and sustainable energy sources, The Boring Company, a subsidiary of SpaceX which is building underground tunnel networks, and Neuralink, which says it aims to "connect humans and computers".

It’s easy to think of Microsoft and immediately think of Bill Gates. While Gates led Microsoft to where it stands today, co-founder Paul Allen played an early instrumental role in creating the software giant. Originally named “Micro-soft,” Gates and Allen founded their software company in 1976 after meeting as students at Lakeside School in Seattle. It was this unique friendship at the right time and the right place that ultimately changed the world of computing. Gates and Allen had been buddies in school and were part of the Lakeside Programmers Group that traded computer programs for free time on the school’s computers. Funded by the Lakeside Mothers’ Club, the school installed a computer terminal in 1968, and it was the students that figured out how to use it before the teachers. Gates and Allen saw the potential of using computers to process local car traffic data, and they created a business partnership named “Traf-O-Data” to read data … [Read more...] about Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen helped change the world
Paul G. Allen, who co-founded software giant Microsoft with childhood friend Bill Gates prior to becoming a billionaire philanthropist, died Monday in Seattle at the age of 65, according to a statement by his company, Vulcan Inc., on behalf of the family. Allen had been battling non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. As soon as the news spread, a flurry of tributes and statements were released. Gates remembers Allen as one of his "oldest and dearest friends" and "personal computing would not have existed without him." Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said Allen "changed the world." Allen had invested his wealth in conservation, space travel, arts and culture and professional sports. He owned the Portland Trail Blazers and Seattle Seahawks, which many on those teams spoke out fondly in Allen's memory. In 1986, Allen and his sister founded Vulcan, the investment firm that oversaw his businesses and philanthropic efforts.
