Well, Elon Musk has been anything but boring lately. His purchase of Twitter has been capturing headlines. Yesterday the CEO of Schwertner Ranch has offered him 100 acres in Jarrell if Musk will move Twitter’s headquarters there. (BTW, not a close relation of Texas State Senator Schwertner MD.) While there is no news of any acceptance, and Jarrel is not the norm for tech companies, there is considerable expectation that another relocation to Texas may be imminent.
Musk himself, is tweeting about Space-X exploits.
The giga-factory is completed and is at least partially in use. Nearby real estate continues to be sold. Space-X continues in the Brownsville area, and has a quiet footprint near Waco.
So, what is happening to Boring? Are there still plans to bore near fault lines? There surely is a great need to reduce traffic, which surely must be unmanageable in the Austin, Texas metro area. Will the rash of towers in Texas metros call for the use of a subway system?
Boring may have some moon shot stories, but a nearer goal is hyperloops around major metros. Valuation recently hit $5.7 Billion. Full-scale testing to begin soon.
