    Please post here if/when you find information on where the Gigafactory press conference can be watched. I think it's supposed to happen today (9/4/2014) at 4pm Nevada time. I advise keeping chat in the other forum post on this. But I think we should have a separate thread so people can easily find where to watch, or at least to get a transcript after the fact, which is what I have in mind for this thread.

    True to from, politicians can't start anything on time. Looks like total chaos with preparations. Maybe Tesla should run the state:)

    wow, almost thought I missed it! Glad I checked... I think I only missed an hour of elevator music and the Nevada Seal. I've never been this excited for a Governor press conference!

    Right when it was about to get interesting with Elon Musk speaking. This is frustrating!

    I am imagining Boris and Natasha-type villains who represent the dealership lobbies are behind this! :p

    From Tesla. Most likely what Musk was going to read anyways:
