Published

Elon Musk has become the richest person in the world thanks to his many investments in the tech world, but how many companies does he actually own? As of late summer 2023 Musk is running six different companies, including his newest venture xAI. His newest company is, as the name suggests, an Artificial Intelligence company that he founded in July 2023. He created this new company to be a rival to the creator of ChatGPT, OpenAI. Interestingly enough OpenAI is one of the companies that Elon Musk used to own, according to this chart created by Madison Trust Company.

Their chart, entitled ‘Everything Elon Musk Owns’, has the six companies Elon Musk currently owns and the four companies he no longer has any stake in. It paints a descriptive picture of Elon Musk’s rise to incredible wealth through the buying and selling of various tech companies since 1995. His rise to wealth started with creating online business directory Zip2, which he sold for $307 million after four years. His first big payday came from the $1.5 billion sale of PayPal to eBay in 2002. From there Musk invested in space transportation with SpaceX and electric vehicles with Tesla, both of which are valued at hundreds of billions of dollars today. But Elon Musk didn’t stop there. He has also founded or invested in solar energy, AI research, underground tunnels, and even implantable brain-computer interfaces. Elon Musk’s business interests are quite broad-ranging; it will be interesting to see what kind of technologies he invests in next.

The 50 States Ranked by How Appealing They Are for Boating

Published

on

Boat lovers have a new way to pick their dream destination with this chart ranking states by how desirable they are for boaters. The SI Yachts team used a detailed scoring system to rank these states. The system considers some of the major factors important to boaters like average temperatures, number of sunny and cloudy days, amount of coastline, lakes, and rivers, hurricane risk, number of boats owned in the state, and the average cost of boater’s insurance. All these factors, averaged together, created the team’s ultimate list of boating states.

Despite the hurricane risks, Louisiana still comes out on top as the best state for boating. Miles and miles of coastline and waterways, low swampy areas, and a fishing legacy make boating a way of life in the Bayou State. As for the bottom of the list, New York was not the Empire State for boating. Expensive boater’s insurance and few days of ideal weather meant that despite this state’s abundance of lakes, rivers, and coastline, it just wasn’t an ideal place to own a boat.

Every boater has different priorities to guide where they want to set sail, but this chart is a great way to consider where you’ll find a boater’s paradise. There’s a great diversity of regions in the top states on this list so East or West, North or South, you’ll find the perfect boating destination.

This may be the most colorful visualization of history we’ve ever seen! This chart shows every single color of Crayola crayon ever made. Given the company’s long history, that’s an impressive and long list of colors! Over the years they’ve made many special and limited editions sets of crayons, so you may not have realized that the company has made over 400 crayon colors. And yet, it’s true! Since the first set of crayons was made back in 1903 with a simple set of 8 colors, the company has become a childhood staple and experimented with all kinds of different colors, styles, and twists on the wax crayon. You can see it for yourself on the visualization:

Scanning over these colors is a real trip down memory lane. Crayola doesn’t have all these colors in circulation anymore. You might remember glitter crayons from childhood or the neon set. Or what about scented crayons that smelled good enough to eat? Many people feel nostalgic over the smell of Crayola’s which comes from a substance called stearic acid, which is derived from beef fat. Unfortunately, you can’t buy every color in the graph fresh and new (though plenty of people sell them used for collectors.) Crayola does sell a huge set of 120 crayons for a well-rounded set of what they offer. Only the most avid collectors might experience all 400 colors, but we can come close with the colorful visual of the long history of Crayola!
