EVTV on National Public Radio.

Jacob Mcclelland of local NPR affiliate KRCU has kind of broken into the national story team at National Public Radio with one of his first national stories – about EVTV. Aired this morning, September 21, 2011 on NPR’s Morning Edition.

Our congratulations to Jacob on getting into national reporting and our appreciation for this very timely story for us.

Our web site would be overrun this morning, but we host on Amazon’s AWS service and it is very nearly infinitely scalable. So not to worry. This should spread the word to many more potential viewers. We’ll see.

Using a service called WEB STAT I can actually see individual connections to the web site and how many are “online” simultaneously. I’m sitting here watch 160 simultaneous video downloads from the Amazon Cloud – a surprising number from RUSSIA and the UKRAINE. Morning Edition must be very early there.

It is a machine of beauty. Amazon’s Cloudnet is bestially arcane to deal with, but a thing of beauty in operation.

  1. Nice bit; heard it this morning; If your intent is to get your messages out there, it’s working and I think we will all be the better by your attempts. When people start putting the facts together and realize how we all have been deceived by the oil companies and their bought politicians, perhaps they will have the knowledge to vote for real “statesmen” who will serve our people and not so much themselves.

  2. Just got back from the Awards Ceremony and I will let Jack tell you all about that. What I will say is that it was a fantastic event, I will try my best to be there next year and I will have my car. I very much am envious of all those who got to run the drag race and autocross. I did get to ride in the Tesla down the drag strip and all I can say is WOW! I believe the run I was on was about 13.7 seconds and just over 99mph at the finish. What a spectactular car!

    I feel honored to have interacted with so many talented people. It is a surreal experience to be standing in the EVTV shop and have Jack or Brian walk by. They both look taller on TV .

  3. My overall impression of the conference is “HOLY COW”. It was just great.
    I got back home Sunday late afternoon, and reflected on how full I was of ideas (and food) for improving my conversion project. I have promised myself that my 1939 dodge truck will be at next year’s EVCCON.
