    I had to give my friend Ira some grief for being such a late adopter…

    Better to be early and dirty or late and great?

      yes, he looks happy, got the belle of the ball... shiny and new:)

      and a wonderful prize. Ira was one of the first cleantech investors, back when he was an outlier... a relatively lone voice.... organizing conferences for years on the topic and seeing the opportunities that lie ahead. So it's a bright shiny day, amplified by his smile...

      This just in from our roving Rachel at CES:

      eCoupled at CES

      eCoupled had cobbled together an wireless inductive charging pad for the Tesla. So if you park over a charging area, there's no need to touch anything to get a charge. They claim it’s 90% as efficient as a direct wire connect.

      They are going to have to figure out how to hide the plug methinks. =)
