This summer, I saw that Google and YouTube were teaming up, looking for video submissions about plug-in electric vehicles to be shown at a conference in Washington DC, sponsored by Google.org and the Brookings Instutution.
My electric motorcycle may not be fancy, but it is a plug-in vehicle, and I didn't have to wait for Detroit to make one for me.
One day, after work, I threw together a 90 second video about my motorcycle. I filled out the one-page on-line application, and submitted it to YouTube.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I was selected as one of three videos to actually be shown at the event!
Since then, the video has had over 60,000 views. Not bad for something put together on a weeknight.
I just hope that it sends the message that there are better ways to do things than what we've been doing.
Watch it below, and help spread the word.
