Hi, I'm Matthias. I work at Intuity Media Lab where I'm handcrafting interfaces and helping others to shape new ideas. I enjoy music, tinkering with web stuff, nonsense and people that don't take life seriously. You can talk to me on Twitter. This tank is full of random things I stumble across and enjoy. Stay hungry, stay foolish - never settle.
Not staring at a screen. Wasting time. Focussing on something for a longer period of time. These are the luxuries of our times.
I am really glad this got so many notes (300 is a lot for me lol)…. but not because I want the notes or whatever but because when I saw this comic it made me feel really weird and sad inside and I thought that I wanted a lot of people to see it too
it makes a point thats really difficult to explain with words in such an artful way and it’s not something I thought about much
“Even without a Supercharger network, EVs are actually much easier to refuel than gas-powered cars, precisely because the “scale and infrastructure” problems were solved by the electrical grid a hundred years ago. Once consumers get used to the charge-at-home ritual, the pilgrimage to the gas station will very quickly feel as inconvenient as rewinding the VHS tape and driving it back to Blockbuster.”
I agree with most of the points but I see one problem here: Yes, due to their ‘limited’ range EVs are especially interesting in cities. But the charge-at-home ritual is difficult to achieve in these areas as one has to own a garage. So therefore car sharing models (e.g. car2go) with charging stations seem like a better fit for big cities to me. They also address the more general problem of cars never being used to their full capacity in these places.
Anyway that certainly is not the kind of market that Tesla is targeting at and the new Supercharger Stations Concept by Tesla seems very impressive.
