Thought of the Day: Website Feedback (Mark, March 26, 2014)

Mark responds to Nikki’s thoughts from yesterday on why so many plug-in car fans abhor plug-in hybrids and asks our fans for feedback and ideas on how to improve the website.

Unlike our other shows, Thought of the Day is our chance to muse on one big story in the news each day, using it as a spring board to explore other topics, sometimes even outside of the Transport Evolved universe. Every weekday, Nikki and Mark will take it in turns to explore a story that catches our eye, developing a back and forth conversation between Transport Evolved’s two regular hosts.

As with our Quick Charge series, our Thought of the Day will be recorded very simply on a single smartphone, but then quickly edited together using the jump cut edit style popular with many YouTube vlogs. We think this style complements our other shows and offers us a different way to share our thoughts with you, our readers and viewers.

Let us know what you think in the comments below.

    I think there is still a vacuum in educational material about plugins. I know that a resourceful person these day can peruse the interwebs and learn all kinds of things and that sites like Plugin America and Tesla Motors aim to fill that gap. However getting a good basic understanding of plugins, charging, pinouts, telemetry, terminology, references, etc is still rather scattered and full of misinformation. Part of that education needs to include the history, or how the current generation EVs came to be. The “evolving” part is missing. Maybe Nufkin Sagan or Nikki Sagan can help 🙂

      Possibly in an upcoming show that I am working on right now? Maybe?

    Hello MarknnIs there some way to collate Transport Evolved feedback. I just use Disqus for my comments, others must use facebook, twitter etc. so when Nikki mentions feedback, Iu2019m thinking where can I see that?nnPaul Churchley gave T E a plug the other day on, a site I frequent along with leaftalk. How about doing a weekly round up of ev forums to reflect what has got under our skin. nnA link to EV Wiki nnI want T E to do a u201cthis is what it can do For Realu201d section in your very good ChargedUp shows. I have a circuit around Maldon that takes me 10 minutes/lap in my Leaf, not anywhere exceeding the speed limit but mostly on the limit, (thatu2019s important because if you just aim for a constant speed, it tells you little) it is 4.7 miles each lap. Its got a hill section, slow high street area, different limits, roundabouts, by-pass etc. You must have an interesting circuit that would allow you to get true comparisons between vehicles. That way you say u201c if you remember our Leaf did x number of laps of this control circuit on a full tank, todayu2019s vehicle does y laps.u201dnnAnd how much are the Transport Evolved Hair Shirts for the over 65u2019s, I am medium size?
