A special Note from Nikki. 

 

Thank you to everyone who has made my time at EVcast a fun experience. I've enjoyed broadcasting each and every week to you for the past year. 

Please do keep in touch, and follow me on twitter  and aminorjourney.com - where there will be some announcements shortly about a new project I'm working on in the alternative energy transport world. 

You can also keep track of my posts at AllcarsElectric.com where I write daily on the electric vehicle world. And of course, I'm continuing to broadcast at www.thisweekinenergy.tv - where we talk about everything to do with renewable energy on the TWiE podcast. 

 

Until then, don't forget to Plug in! 

 

Nikki.

Nikki -

Speaking for the listening (though mostly silent) masses, we'll miss you!  I have really enjoyed your intelligent thoughtful, upbeat, enthusiastic coverage of news about EV's!  And I've also enjoyed the equally intelligent, articulate guests you have had on your Saturday show.  It is a testament to your great spirit that you have had many respected leaders in the EV world join you!  You are a treasure!  Best wishes on your future endeavors, and congratulations to you and Kate on starting a family!

Waiting excitedly for my Nissan LEAF, Smile

Thank you Alan, and everyone else! I'm not going to be leaving the EV world by any stretch of the imagination and as I've already hinted, I've got some other really exciting projects I'm working on with some fantastic people in the EV world. Thank you all for putting up with my rambling shows! ;)

In the meantime, please feel free to email me at nikki at littlecollie dot com! :)  

Nikki.

Good show Nikki!  I am sorry to see you go, but will not say good-bye- I'm sure our paths will cross elsewhere.  It was/is nice to have the different hosts for the different EVCasts- you each bring a unique style and perspective- I like the variety!  I was sorry I had to run off half-way thru it Saturday though.

Nice to meet Chad- he is getting into the EV world at an exciting time.  It seems like early in different industries, a lot of future movers got started as shadetree mechanics- from pilots in the early 20th century for flight, car enthusiasts in the middle part of that century, engineers in the computer industry working in their garages before launching some of today's behemoth companies- and now EVs.  If the past is any indicator (including before the 20th century- see some of the 'Connections' episodes), you are set to follow along this same path, which at the very least will be exciting and maybe even present some industry-changing opportunities- good luck!

And Chad's web site:  http://chadconway.pbworks.com/

And what is this- people bad-mouthing Chelsea over on Autoblog.green!  You have to be one of the most even and nicest people out there (well- unless they pick on Mr Bean, of course!)- alas!  the dark side of Internet Anonymity.

Well- again, good shoow Nikki and company.  As I sit here reflecting on it, trying to find the best way to describe this final show, one word crystalizes in my mind-

Combustible!
