Getting a lot of buzz on our CarbonMETRICS (C) approach to sponsoring next-gen, carbon neutral racecars and teams. Demonstrated the METRICS aspect of the equation as part of a start-up panel presentation at the IEEE Electric Vehicles (EV) conference (Greenville, SC USA), which emphasized how the new sponsor categories interplayed with venture capital (VC) interests and those of "green" companies. Followed up with the Carbon Offsets part of the equation in an article which recently appeared in Charged!,
the slick, edgy electric vehicles publication with Christian Ruoff at the helm. I have a large-scale piece on next-gen vehicles appearing soonest in another publication that touches base on the key players from hydrogen to electrics and beyond. More on that when it hits the street next month. Also, my recent appointment to the Commercial Space Group is getting increasingly interesting, particularly as I'm the "outsider" (here in a formal sense) working on the interface among automotive, aerospace, the Internet entrepreneurs and how that plays into profitability in LEO, GeoSynch, and Lunar orbital business plans.
And, yes, I've been in some of the next-gen cars at high speed and these ain't your Grandma's "pretty-in-pink" ugly, slow little hybrids. These are kick-ass, high g-force green monsters. More soon and hope to see you at the racetrack. To paraphrase Steve McQueen, "Racing is life, everything else is just waiting."
