Regarding the interview with Chamath Palihapitiya... I heard it live on CNBC (again today via your link) and it didn't leave me wanting to buy Tesla shares.

Chamath sees Elon for the visionary that he is, wants to keep a piece of that for the future, but doesn't exactly recommend the stock. In fact, I got the impression that he did not recommend the stock rather he was happily invested in the convertible bonds knowing that if the company goes bankrupt the bond holders get paid out first (before ordinary shareholders).

Chamath would like to see the world let Elon just do his thing, use his intelligence to make the world a better place. That doesn't necessary mean that individual shareholders will be the better, but it could.

Personally, after hearing the interview I wanted to know more about Tesla's bonds.
