2012 Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run, Bayfront Park, Miami FL


This is probably the most exciting time to be considering a new car because for the first time, electric and electric/gas hybrids are widely available at fair competitive prices - but could an electric car be in your future?  If GM, Ford, Toyota, Honda, Nissan and Tesla are to be believed, then yes.  But it's not just these companies that are desperately working to deliver sustainable electric powered vehicles, many entrepreneurial companies are working on everything from extended batteries to control units. more

Cars from Silicon Valley

Perhaps one of the most interesting players in the electric car race has to be Tesla Motors - interesting because they are not a traditional car manufacturer looking to enter the EV space but rather a Silicon Valley start-up bent on getting the world off oil.   Tesla co-founder Elon Musk spent the better part of his PayPal fortune getting Tesla off the ground.  Later he secured a loan from Daimler, The US Dept. of Energy and $225m from the 2010 IPO (the first automaker IPO since Ford in 1956). more

All electric or bust

Nissan's Carlos Ghosn was responsible for bringing the Nissan Leaf to market - to date the only mass-market EV available in world.  Ghosn was able to leverage a $1.5b loan - part of the $25b Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan Program authorized by Congress in 2007 - to build a new factory to produce Li-Ion batteries for the Leaf. more

Will Volt Outlast EV1

The EV1 was the first purpose-specific electric car built by GM between 1996 and 1999.  The EV1, available only on lease was recalled in 2003 and the cars were crushed and destroyed. A lot of people with long memories will be looking hard at GM and the Volt before going down that road again. more

"The Revenge Of The Electric Car"

"Revenge", follows Chris Paine's 2006 "Who Killed The Electric Car" and is a startling romp through the auto industry, closely following the lives of four individuals and their dreams for EV dominance on the world's roads. more

I love connecting with people from around the world and getting to understand their special strengths.  And ever since creating my first computer program on a TRS-80 in 1980, I have loved technology.  For me, SherlockTech Staffing unites these life-long passions along with the exhilarating challenge of building an entrepreneurial business in a hyper-dynamic industry.  By helping lead numerous tech user groups, industry associations, youth organizations, and high school IT academies, I feel confident of an energized future for our community, our company, and my four children.
