    I'm really happy to see JB sharing in the limelight with Elon over in the EU!

    Over the past few years it seemed like JB did not get much press time. The videos coming out of Germany and Amsterdam are great. I'm hoping for more JB exposure in the future. Personally, I think JB is an unsung hero in terms of Tesla-lore and deserves a more credit and exposure. I would really like to see him do more interviews and blogs.

    I think JB and EM make a great pair and seem to feed of each other. I do hope JB talks more as I really enjoyed his Stanford presentation.

    No! JB Straubel should be busy working! There's technology to be made!

    +1 JB is a good counterpoint and is the right point person for certain audiences

    There's sadly a lot of companies where the top brass are simply business suits who have no hand in the design and technical aspects of their company, it's great that Elon and JB are one of the exceptions (interestingly in some ways, a parallel to Jobs/Ives at Apple). The side effect of following all of Musk's conversations is that we only get like 5% new information each time, more JB from a different perspective would be awesome.
