The 2004 meeting is widely believed to be the beginning of a long-standing rivalry between the moguls and their space companies, SpaceX and Blue Origin.
While Bezos hasn't publicly discussed the meal, Musk described their meeting to Christian Davenport for his book 'The Space Barons.' Musk said that Bezos was 'barking up the wrong tree' about rockets and that SpaceX had already tried several of the ideas Bezos was proposing, calling them 'dumb.'
'I actually did my best to give good advice, which he largely ignored,' Musk said.
Bezos has made veiled critiques of Musk's goal of sending humans to Mars, while Musk has taken jabs at some of Amazon's business ventures, calling Bezos a 'copycat' on more than one occasion. SpaceX and Blue Origin have also competed over talent, patents, NASA contracts, and access to launchpads.
For the past several months, Bezos and Musk have also been jockeying for the title of the richest person in the world. Bezos is in the No. 1 spot with a fortune of $181 billion, while Musk, with a net worth of about $170 billion, is No. 2.
MacKenzie Scott is married!
According to The Wall Street Journal, MacKenzie married Seattle school teacher Dan Jewett on Sunday (March 7).
MacKenzie's ex-husband Jeff Bezos congratulated the couple in a statment to WSJ.
'Dan is such a great guy, and I am happy and excited for the both of them,' Jeff told the outlet.
Jeff and MacKenzieannounced their divorce in January 2019 after 25 years of marriage. She pledged to give half her $37 billion fortune to charity after their split and donated the money to Warren Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates initiative Giving Pledge.
Dan added his name to the Giving Pledge website on Saturday (March 6) and wrote in a statement on the site, 'It is strange to be writing a letter indicating I plan to give away the majority of my wealth during my lifetime, as I have never sought to gather the kind of wealth required to feel like saying such a thing would have particular meaning.'
'I have been a teacher for the majority of my life, as well as a grateful student of the generosity of those around me. This has meant doing my best to follow their example by passing on resources of all kinds—from time, to energy, to material possessions—when I have had them to give,' he continued.
'And now, in a stroke of happy coincidence, I am married to one of the most generous and kind people I know — and joining her in a commitment to pass on an enormous financial wealth to serve others.'
