Driven: Shai Agassi's Audacious Plan to Put Electric Cars on the Road

It's the most interesting article I've read in a while.

I had read elsewhere that Israel had plans to transition to an all-electric car infrastructure. This is obviously the guy/company behind that. Very cool to read a little bit more about him. The world needs more intelligent entrepreneurs with deep pockets, and that's exactly what he is. Kudos to him.

I found the description of his meeting with the House Representative quite amusing but also quite sad. Sounds like the rep is a typical Washington idiot.

heard on NPR this morning that someone (state or federal don't recall) is requiring that electric or hybrid cars make a minimum amount of noise... they are concerned that they will be so quite that the visually impaired won't have any warning of approaching vehicles.

The method to make the extra noise was not mentioned... perhaps they can just strap an m80 on the hood \:\)

I sense a new market. It will be like ringtones for cars, only these sounds will be known as blind-person-repellers.

I make my own blind person repellent. I expel it with a great flapping of my buttocks, el medio vibrato ...
