FORA.tv - Martin Eberhard: Learn by Doing
Thanks for that. Was that this year in San Mateo? I was at Maker Faire, but somehow missed seeing that on the agenda.
According to the context I’d have to say the video is from the May 2011 San Mateo event. Martin mentions seeing a couple of Volts in the parking lot, etc.
I consider you the master of finding good EV stuff on the web, for which I’m very grateful, so I feel a little foolish offering this tip I just stumbled on, which might already be well known.
But here goes: search at Google advanced image search instead of standard search. Moving the cursor over an image brings up information, including a web page URL. It’s good to decide whether you think it’s friendly before continuing.
Clicking on the image yields the same image, maybe larger. If you wait a few seconds a ghost background image of a web page appears. Closing the image brings the source web page into focus, and you’re there. That’s how I found this video.
Additionally, a Google advanced image search, followed by selecting Videos on the left side of the page, often works better for me than Google advanced video search, which has seriously devolved.
Incidentally, I’m using Chrome and a backgrade to 64 bit XP Pro.
Yeah, I have used image search then visited the underlying URLs to find things, but lately I haven't been doing a lot of image searching.
And, yes, visiting URLs of image search results can be risky these days. How many fake virus scanners (that install viruses) do I need?

TEG is absolutely right. Don’t try these unconventional searches at home. I’ve learned from plenty of bitter experience some ways to protect myself.
Finding this particular video was very pleasing, and to me well worth the risk. It was good to finally hear from Martin again, learn that he prospered very nicely from all his startups, and see a very interesting talk.
Yeah, I miss hearing from Martin. He is a great speaker. I figured he decided to keep a much lower profile lately.
What the heck was that Japanese guy asking?
I doubt even he knew.
He looked a lot older.
Still a compelling funny storyteller though.
My wild guess is “crop circle”: Crop circle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
