electric event


Went to an open house for ChargeCar today. The group is going to create a community-based effort to convert vehicles to electric power, with a focus on converting cars for people to use for commuting.  I like the way the project draws on so many strengths of Pittsburgh: from geography (dense urban area, short commutes, hills which are great for recapturing energy when you go down them), to our industrial strengths (steel, engineering), to our population (experienced mechanics, machinists, technologists, designers, teachers). Great also to be at an event where I saw school colleagues, artist friends, our car mechanic, researchers, students, small children... many kinds of community represented.
