Earth Day EV Ride & Drive in Palo Alto

April 15, 2019

Last Saturday our family spent a really nice morning attending the Earth Day EV Ride & Drive in Palo Alto. I heard about it through the Tesla Owners Silicon Valley group and decided to volunteer some of my time to share with people the wonders of having an electric vehicle.

The Model 3 Owners Club is facilitating test drives/rides for potential new buyers with existing owners on their forum. When the referral program went away a few weeks ago a lot of people thought that it was the end of Tesla owners helping each other, they couldn’t have been more wrong! If you are a Model 3 Owner and want to help, add yourself to the map in the link below.

Thank you Model 3 Owners community and thanks Trev!

Tesla Autonomy Day

Tesla spent almost four hours on Monday presenting to investors the current state of FSD. Luckily for the rest of us, the event was livestreamed.

Tesla covered their hardware, the famous HW3 designed in-house; their software, including an intro to NNs by Andreij Karpathy; and their future plans for a robo-taxi fleet. Honestly, the presentation was deeply technical and it didn’t seemed addressed to investors that much. If you are the type of person who likes learning about the nerdy details I encourage you to watch the entire presentation, it’s really worthy.
