Happy Monday from Quick Shift, where we’re in the midst of SXSW — a festival full of tech, music and surprise CEO cameos. — Katie Burke
A wild Elon appears: Tesla CEO Elon Musk made an unplanned appearance at SXSW, discussing Tesla’s near-death experience and his fears of AI to a packed crowd. Musk also kept Austin weird with an impromptu musical performance.
Back on the farm: While Musk was in Austin, Bloomberg reported that Tesla had suspended production of the Model 3 in late February, amid the automaker’s efforts to ramp up production of the long-awaited electric sedan.
