If you’ve ever wondered what goes on inside a tech billionaire’s mind, head to Elon Musk’s Twitter page. You’ll discover his endless stream of consciousness filled with bizarre memes, cryptic phrases and, at times, thought-provoking questions curated from his toilet.
“It gives me solace,” he explained.
Recently crowned Time magazine’s Person of the Year, Musk took to Twitter on Sunday with a jaw-dropping historic clip of Bill Gates speaking to David Letterman about the concept of the internet.
The video shows angel investor Jason Calacanis watching the 1995 interview between the pair, in which the host and audience appear to mock the tech mogul.
Musk added in a separate tweet: “I’m not suggesting web3 is real – seems more marketing buzzword than reality right now – just wondering what the future will be like in 10, 20 or 30 years. 2051 sounds crazy futuristic!”
For the blissfully unaware, Web 3.0 or Web3 is the next generation of the worldwide web.
The idea is to have a more decentralised web that challenges the tech giants and their power by putting the power in the hands of the users. The data is distributed across networks with no single entity owning the information.
