http://www.sciam.com/article.cfm?chanId=sa003&articleId=19CCCAFF-E7F2-99DF-394B61DF5ECC42B3 - the scent of a man. I don't know why I find this sort of thing interesting.

I heard this man interviewed on NPR on my way home from work the other day. He is sincerely trying to develop an electric car that will work, that will be practical, that people won't be embarrassed to drive.
