I’m struggling to come to terms with the idea that you can park for free in central London with this car. You’ll understand what I mean if you’ve ever had an altercation with a traffic warden here. Due to the terrorist attacks, there were 50,000 extra cyclists on the roads last Thursday, some of whom looked decidedly wobbly. I ‘ve also heard that the second hand value on these cars is appreciating…perhaps there is an ev future after all. Click on the image to view video.
A few of the readers from EV World have shown an interest in starting a vlog so I thought I’d let you know what I know. The best place to start is at Freevlog. They will guide you through the process of starting to vlog with a series of really informative films. The other great place to look is at videoblogging.info which is a good resource. It’s also worth checking out a few of the vloggers that make it look really simple. Try Steve Garfield over in the States and 29Fragiledays for another UK Vlogger. Happy Vlogging!
Before I can drive the car I need to give it some juice. I’ve forgotten to put the parking permit into the car and I’ll have a parking ticket before you know it. There is a strict order of events for charging the car. I just need to unlock it, unplug it, put the parking permit in, lock it, plug it in… and don’t set the blowers off.

5 months waiting and the car is finally here. They come off the ship, are taken to a base where the car is registered and the road tax is applied for (no charge for road tax on electric vehicles). Then it’s delivered. Apologies for the wobbly cam – think I was a bit overexcited! Click on the image to view video.
Is this the end of tube travel..
Great news for vloggers, within the next two months Google is expected to unveil a search engine for Web-only video this summer that will let people preview media clips from its Web site.
Although the drive behind the video search facility is advertising revenue and payment for viewing videos online, the implications for those producing free video content and distributing is via blogs is huge. Just like blogs have changed the balance of power between the journalists, marketers and PR wonks and the audience of bloggers and their readers, I believe something similar can be done with video blogging.
But first let’s do vlogging for entertainment and fun.
