Google/YouTube Plug-in Car video contest entries

Here is a link to a Google map for the upcoming plug-in conference in Washington:

http://www.google.org/recharge/dcplu...nce/index.html

On the map, you can locate plug-in vehicles and find videos by location that people have submitted through Youtube for the EVent.

I thought a few from around Santa Monica, California, USA, were pretty interesting.

Santa Monica owns quite a few RAV4 EV's including two I saw at the Santa Monica Beach Pier recharging station, while visiting out there.

They Picked MINE!

Hey, guess what! They picked my video as one of the videos to show at the conference!



"Ben,


Congratulations! Your video was reviewed and was selected to be shown the Brookings-Google.org conference this week in Washington, D.C. In order to show your video, we need to have the original video file so that we can then send this to another company to make this video of the quality that it will be able to be projected at the conference. Can you please send me your video file at your earliest convenience? Also, please not that by sending me your video file you are consenting for us to highlight it by showing it at the conference.


Thank you again and congratulations!


Best,


Adam"

Hey Ben, I was watching the videos of the Google.org Plug-In conference here, and you are the feature photo for the 5th Video ("300+ MPG equivalent"). Its a pretty impressive audience that saw your bike and was a very interesting conference to take a look at. You are rubbing digital shoulders with some giants of the EV/plug in world there Benno! Nice work.

Pretty cool to see all those Congressmen and industry leaders watching my video!
