Come on people... this really DOES have to stop. 

I can't imagine how down and depressed Ash was in order to have taken this final step in his life, but my heart weeps for him and the four other trans kids who have met the same fate this year because their family, friends and school weren't supportive of them. 

Remember, what's between someone's legs is irrelevant in the wold. Who they are, and how they interact with the world around them, is paramount. 

Don't let your prejudice and fear ruin someone else's life. 

Coming out is tough... whatever the coming out is. Love and support, not hate and shame. 

I had hoped when I started to come out of the closet back in '99 and '00 that things would have changed by now. Yet here we are, 15 years later, still dealing with the same shit. The same fear. The same anger. 

A beautiful life is no more. Let's make sure no more are sacrificed.

Well, of course that is a generelization, but I know from experience that many teenagers see some problems as being bigger than they are, and they have little or no clue of what to really expect from adult life. But of course not every teenager is like that. And I'm not blaming the teenager for their problem, just for choosing the wrong solution. Is that harsh? Not as harsh as actually killing yourself, that's for sure.

So I have a question for you all: would you rather I did a video review (about 5 minutes in length) for a new idea we're trying -- or would you rather I didn't if the sound was plagued by wind noise? (Our lav mic died and we didn't notice until we were back at the studio)

Or you could always run subtitles on the screen, so that folks who are distracted by the wind noise could turn the volume down and still understand what is going on.

•Because we work really hard on this*

So, we've got a new website. And we've upgraded our studio backdrop too. Let me know what you think, and let me know if you think you can help us grow.

Since we first saw a sneak peek of it at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and then at its official 2015 Detroit Auto Show Debut, the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Volt has been getting a lot of attention. Due to enter production this August ahead of a market debut in the U.S. shortly …

Throughout its short history, Californian automaker Tesla Motors [NASDAQ:TSLA]  has worked hard to beat Detroit at its own game, producing super-fast, highly-sophisticated luxury electric cars that no other automaker has managed to beat. Tesla has even shunned the rest of the U.S. auto industry by staying clear of Detroit and the rest of Michigan, choosing the …

For nearly a year now, we’ve been closely following the construction of Tesla’s first Gigafactory, a massive 1,000-acre lithium-ion manufacturing and reprocessing facility in Reno, Nevada. Essential to Tesla Motors’ [NASDAQ:TLSA] CEO Elon Musk’s ultimate plan of weaning the world off fossil fuels and onto clean, renewable energy for our homes and our transportation, the …

We've had an upgrade

Here's the latest episode of TEN -- Transport Evolved News. 

Weekly show about future cars and future car technology. This week news about: Penny stock rise due to erroneous association with Tesla; GM admits it won't hit its electrified car goals; Mitsubishi Outlander sales success in UK; Sergio Marchionne impressed by Elon Musk; the FTC stands up for Tesla Motors; what it's like driving a hydrogen fuel cell car every day; self-driving cars don't cause crashes (yet); Refuel 2015 set for June this year.

We're a small company, with one full-time (unpaid) member of staff -- me -- and a handful of dedicated, unpaid support staff. I hope you'll support us so we can do more. :)

The next Tesla Motors, or just another automotive wannabe? 

Or is it too early to decide, given how little we know about it? 

https://transportevolved.com/2015/05/13/the-next-tesla-motors-former-tesla-employees-aim-to-revolutionise-electric-cars-from-teslas-back-yard/
In many ways, Silicon Valley automaker Tesla Motors [NASDAQ:TSLA] broke the mould when it came to what a successful automaker was. In addition to shunning the lure of Motor City, the young startup has quickly matured into a full-blown automaker thanks to its fresh ideas on how a car should be engineered, built, and maintained. …

When it comes to auto executives who hate electric cars, Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne is at the top of the list. Having spent many years dismissing electric vehicles as pointless, expensive distractions, Marchionne is in vocal opposition to California’s zero emission mandate, which requires automakers to produce a specific number of zero emission vehicles …

So we've been busy...

In the last 24 hours, we've launched a new Transport Evolved site -- and we've got a new fancy TEN set. 

I'd love you to check out both the video and the website, and let me know what you think.

 Tesla losses widen, but less than analysts predicted. As a consequence, shares rise and everyone is happy. 

There's also some good news from Tesla on those wall batteries, the Model X and more.

As many analysts had predicted, the just-published Q1 2015 shareholder letter for Tesla Motors [NASDAQ:TSLA] shows the Californian company posted increasing losses during the first quarter of this year, but managed to beat analyst predictions on how large those losses would be, prompting a healthy after-hours trading rally. Yet it also managed to hit and pass …

Introduction

Too geeky to be a hipster.

Founder, editor-in chief at Transport Evolved, explaining technology that makes cars cleaner, greener, safer and smarter. Also writes on everything from gender issues to computer tech and adoptive parenting.

Trained as a classical oboist but went to the dark side for the cookies and venti soya latte.

Total Mac geek, Classic car nut and tech fan. Early adopter. Of everything.

Married to Kate. Mom to two wonderful adopted kids.

Sometimes found terrorising the neighbourhood in costume, but looks equally stupid in arctic weather gear and bunny suits.

Bragging rights
Survived the odd job change, gender change and even underwear change. How about you?
