Love him or hate him, Elon Musk has change our world. Five years ago I read "Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future" (by Ashlee Vance) who covered Musk's beginnings from Zip2 (which was bought by Compaq before the merger with HP) then PayPal on to Tesla and SpaceX.
I had never heard the name "Zip2" before ( https://www.sitebuilderreport.com/origin-stories/elon-musk ) but wondered why Compaq acquired it for more than 300 million. It made Musk an instant 22-millionare (which he then parlayed into PayPal) but does anyone here now what became of ZIp2 inside Compaq?
