Exclusive Peek Inside Tesla's Model S and Model X

This weekend, Telsa held an exclusive Model X preview for reservation holders. As the CEO of a mobile startup, I have mad respect for Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla. Here's a guy who, after starting and selling PayPal, started not one, but two companies with prescient timing: Tesla and SpaceX. As gas heads towards $5/gallon (with the imminent threat of shooting up higher) and the US retires its Space Shuttle program, Elon's two startups are positioned perfectly. For more background on Tesla, take a look at the blog post I wrote after touring the Tesla Factory.

Critics are raving over the Model X. As someone who's passionate about cars & motorcycles and hopeful for the future of electric vehicles that perform as well or better than their fossil fuel burning brethern, I was originally a reservation holder for the Model S. When I saw the Model X, I immediately swapped my reservation out. Now I'm #486 on the list for a Model X. You can get a reservation of your own here -- it's a $5k refundable deposit. Your only risk, really, is that Tesla doesn't stay viable as a company, but as someone in the tech industry, I really believe in Elon, his vision, and his ability to execute. I'm willing to take that risk.

On The Thoughtful Young Djedi from Bermuda

By the looks of it that title lies with a young 22 year old multi-millionaire by the name of Jamal Edwards.

Jamal Edwards started SB.TV when he was 16 years old. Growing up in the West London district of Acton, he received a $300 camera from his parents for Christmas and started filming the local rappers in his neighborhood.

The videos mostly consisted of short interviews and MCs spitting bars in front of the camera. Jamal learned how to edit those videos and shortly thereafter started to post them on the recently launched YouTube network.

As Jamal started to shoot and produce more video content he generated a buzz around the London HipHop and Grime scene. At the time he was still working as a shop assistant in TopMan to make ends meet but he quickly saw his entrepreneurial future in the work he was doing outside of his 9 to 5.
