The Killer Elon Musk Revelation and Other TED 2017 Moments You Need to Know

Elon Musk reveals his ultimate entrepreneurial motivation, capping off a week of TED Talks from Serena Williams, Tim Ferriss, and other luminaries

Elon Musk closed the TED conference, which ends a phenomenal week of artistic struggle, stunning limitations, and serious entrepreneurial wisdom. One quote from his Q & A with TED head Chris Anderson captures the spirit of the week.

Why do I do this? We assume technology automatically improves. It does not. It only improves if a lot of people work hard to make it better… Ancient Egypt created the pyramids, then, generations later, they forgot how. Romans had the aqueduct system, then forgot how. By itself, technology actually degrades.

The theme is the hidden hand: The ideas that power our world that can wreck us when we go in autopilot. It can be our ego, as Pope Francis (yes, that Pope Francis) shared mid-week, or our stress, which celebrated neuroscientist Dr. Rebecca Brachman explained, or our fear, as Tim Ferriss showed in the ultimate way to get conquer it.
