    Thread tables, topic tables, birds of a feather... I'm not sure we ever decided on a single name, but a feature of TMC Connect is that at lunch time we have tables designated for specific discussion topics. You then sit at the table (first come first served) for the topic you'd like to discuss over lunch.

    We'd like you to use this thread to suggest what discussion topics you'd like available for birds of a thread table topic feathers. :)

    Hi Lori ! That's a very recent emergent concept. Check the Model X threads. Hint: sig #2
    could blow up, could fade away :biggrin:

    Added the 'get off oil' table (?)

    I haven't followed Model X threads, figured I start reading once their was an official reveal and we discuss actual specs instead of speculation and tears of anticipation. But, since I seem to remember it is either you (Mike L) or Bonnie that has the second reservation for Model S, I'm guessing she is the Tesla princess. Am I right?

    Hope to see you at TMC connect

    Final Table Topics

    We've finalized a list of topics and found some great volunteers who are willing to lead the discussions over lunch. We've tried to keep it broad and varied so that if you don't get to sit at your preferred table then there should be plenty of others to choose from. In some case there are multiple table leaders just because there's so much great experience and knowledge here on TMC we felt it was worth it. Also please note that a couple of the topics are led by main session speakers so if you don't get to ask your burning question at the main session head for their table at lunchtime.

    General TSLA Investing – Robert.Boston

    Visible Tesla – JPasqua

    Developing Apps/Rest API
    – Dirkhh

    Charge Station Installation (Esp. Workplace) – Lloyd

    Home Solar Installation / All things Electrical – Flasher Z

    Fitting your Model S with Dashcams – JPP and brianman

    Road tripping East Coast to TMC Connect – Aaron.s

    Anything and Everything Roadster – s.casner and smorgasbord

    Model S Modifications – artsci

    Superchargers vs Chademo – joer00

    The goal: getting off oil! – MikeL

    The dealership fight 101 – dsm363

    We've added a poll at the top of this thread to ascertain demand on the different tables. It's non-binding and seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis but your responses will be helpful if we have to do any last minute juggling.

    Thanks.
