Tesla announcing the "D" one week from today, October 9th. D hopefully means D for Dual drive (awd). T also recently started delivering cars with new hardware for lane change detection type equipment, so D could be Driver assistance. The registration for Teslas have a possible entry for AWD: ftp://ftp.nhtsa.dot.gov/mfrmail/org9130.pdf.

@elonmusk I think you could probably wordsmith the phrasing of "unveil the D" a bit more and revisit this tweet. But congrats! Expand Collapse. Reply; Retweet Retweeted; Favorite Favorited. More. Embed Tweet. Chet Cutick ‏@chetcutick 13h12 hours ago ...

Fantastic simulation website for the Rosetta explorer, which was launched 10 years ago and will soon reach a comet, to which it will send a lander. The webpage has a 3d model of the solar system showing planets and the comet moving, and you can zoom in and out and rotate it around and go forward and backward in time.

Elon Musk has a new interview in Vanity Fair before the big reveal of his D tomorrow: It looks pretty certain they will launch dual drive (aka AWD) as well as an advanced drive assist package.  Says Senior Musk: "The Internet is very good at guessing [...] the magnitude is not appreciated yet."

I just published a blog post about what it is like to move from a big company to a startup. If you follow some basic ideas that I outlined in my post about how to leave, you can try a startup without much risk, because you can always go back to that safe job. Check out it out on the Ivy Softworks website.

Feeling like some mellow music? Can you remember the 70s? You'll probably like this song list.

I love this radio play "Darkside", which is a BBC production based on "Dark Side of the moon".  At least the first 10 minutes that I listened to :-) There are a few scattered curse words, so perhaps not for young children.

Washington State car dealers are trying to pass laws to restrict Tesla from selling their cars.  We don't need more useless middlemen.  Stop WA state laws that protect car dealers - stop HB2524 and SB6272.  Find your reps here: http://www.leg.wa.gov/pages/home.aspx
