Author of new Elon Musk bio unhappy with sites stealing info
Ashlee Vance Says Business Insider Was "Serializing The Book In Lots Of Little Posts"
Vance told the Observer that he understands that the book, Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future, would get covered by the online world, but he felt that, "[Business Insider was taking] it to the next level. They were serializing the book in lots of little posts." You can see some of the exchange in Vance's Twitter posts here. Business Insider's Henry Blodget defended the posts as promoting the book. Vance said that BI has now taken down the posts and the URLs now redirect to the book's Amazon entry, but we could find posts that look like they fit the description here and here, for example.
Whatever other sites want to do with this book, here at AutoblogGreen we're going to be discussing the book in our forums and on social media this coming Friday at 1 pm Eastern. That should give you time to listen to the audiobook or at least skim the sections on Tesla, if you want to contribute. If you just want to participate by reading, well, stop on by on Friday. We'll have more details available Friday morning.
