It’s true, we’ve been a bit lax on gulker.com’s updates lately. Part of it is that I’m busy blogging for InMenlo, where I have to please a tough editor (get me rewrite!) with both words and pictures. InMenlo is also growing rapidly, and great post ideas are beginning to flow as our community network grows, which is keeping me busy.

If Tesla executives insist on spending our electric car grants on private planes, they should at least crash them into the bay or just call them executive perk grants.
