    Now seem to be reduced even further. Lookslike they are now happening once a month on the 18th. The last 3-4 were posted that way. It is such a shame that they are wasting that communication platform. I have stopped reading their blogs all together now. I assume the information will be posted here before there or shortly afterwards. IMHO - PATHETIC. I am greatly dissappointed in them as a whole right now.

    I think many of the people who keep up with the blogs were in Europe for the past month or two. I agree that this calendar year the blog offerings have been disappointing. They seem to have slowed their posts on the Owners Forum as well which is unfortunate.

    It is a great shame as there have been some recent events which have cried out for an opportune follow-up blog - such as the Whitestar Mule discovery or the recent overheating issues in Germany.

    There have been several badly written articles in the online media recently. The TM blogs would be an excellent place to clarify issues.

    We even seem to have run out of prospective customers to write about their experiences.

    Come back Dr Rob Wilder!

    At this rate, I'd even be prepared to read through some "sweet sweet baby" stuff from Kimbal, but blog coordination seems to have Transitioned to the Tesla Advisory Board.

    There was talk earlier in the year, that the endgame for XXX was a "pump & dump". The recent Roadster deliveries & articles seem to put that in the background.

    Q: Does the current TM management REALLY have a long term strategy for the company? Roadster, S car & beyond? Or, is it all preparation for a "pump & dump"?

    When they ejected Judy Estrin, & L. Sosini came on board..what does all that mean? Pump & dump?

    Some commentors on the Seattle Roadshow blog, wish that there had been better publicity prior to the event:

    Tesla Motors - feel

    It is as sad statement but I no longer waste my time reading those blogs. They are pathetic.

    Well, I did manage to get a pointer to these forums into the comments. Hopefully we will gain a few extra members from that and those guys will be forewarned next time. (Pity about the stupid typo that I cannot edit there, though.)

    Seems that Tesla has rejuvenated the blogs a bit lately!

    Yes, they have been doing a better job at bringing in new articles. I feel that all the blog posts will continue to speed up again considering they need to keep their customers and their loyal fans close. I also wonder if they will completely redo the site after they inroduce the Model S:biggrin:
