Elon solving affordable housing - Elon Musk Just Tweeted a Life-Changing Decision, and Almost Nobody Even NoticedSpace travel is wild. Electric cars are neat. Crypto is cool. But if you really want to understand Elon Musk (he's the subject of my free e-book, Elon Musk Has Very Big Plans, I'd look to a specific tweet from 24 days ago.  Here's the tweet, from June 9, in which Musk described where and how, exactly, he's decided to live:

My primary home is literally a ~$50k house in Boca Chica / Starbase that I rent from SpaceX. It's kinda awesome though.  Only house I own is the events house in the Bay Area. If I sold it, the house would see less use, unless bought by a big family, which might happen some day.

It turns out, Musk is almost certainly living in a 380-square-foot, tiny, foldable house-in-a-box, which was manufactured by a company called Boxabl, delivered to the SpaceX launch facility in Boca Chica, TX on a flatbed truck, and set up on-site in less than a day.

Boxabl co-founder Galiano Tiramani explained in the video how the house was built and transported--and teased that it had been delivered for the use of "a top-secret customer" located in (you guessed it): Boca Chica, Texas.

You'll note that Tiramani sits next to a giant poster of a SpaceX rocket inside the tiny home while he talks about his "top-secret customer," so this didn't exactly require Sherlock Holmes levels of deductive reasoning.

Now, the big question is what kind of kind of investment Musk or Tesla might have made in Boxabl. It's a private company, and so far they're not saying.

We live in an era in which housing affordability is a huge and growing problem almost everywhere--and then we find out that Musk, with a reported net worth as I write this of $167.7 billion--literally lays his head at night inside the prototype for a possible home of the future?

That's a big idea. In fact, it's quite possibly even bigger than electric cars and space travel, at least during our lifetimes.
