I'm not really saying anything, I don't have any facts. But IMHO, I don't think that is coming from Elon. That's probably management freaking out and trying to be proactive.

I once had a VP ask way so and so wasn't at their desk. This resulted in managers demanding that no one leave their desks for any reason. If you had to talk to someone 2 desks over, you had to call them. We had people written up for going to the bathroom. None of this was directed by the VP, they just asked an innocent question.

So I would reserve judgement until things settle down, management begins to breath again, and Elon has more than a couple days on the job.

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
