I’m not anticipating a real blog recovery until this semester ends. And when it does, I’ll say good riddance. It has been a rough one for me, for reasons that I don’t entirely understand. (The only “reason” that I’ve been able to come up with is that I didn’t get as “caught up” as usual during the Winter Break. And that after starting the semester behind, I’ve never recovered.) In the meantime, I keep coming up with posts, and then never getting around to posting them. Here’s a quick one, though.
A few weeks ago, I read this David Pogue interview with Shai Agassi, the CEO of Better Place. (You can watch part of the interview on CBS here.) I was intrigued, but didn’t think much more of it. Then, today, I ran across a video of Agassi’s talk at TED. I watched it this evening, and I must say, I’m starting to believe. This guy and his company may have an intriguing piece of the solution to the climate puzzle. It will be interesting to see how their rollouts in Israel, Denmark, and Australia go. It sounds to me like they haven’t quite figured out how to crack the U.S. nut, but if their initial rollouts go well, then I expect that the U.S. will come on board relatively quickly.
Here’s the TED video:
