“For the first time ever we will have the 2017 Electra Meccanica Solo on full Autoshow display for people to see, touch, sit in and order! First Solo deliveries are now planned for May, and with over 500 orders already on our books I expect new orders placed will deliver around July 2018 when we have our production lines ramped up.”
See Electra Meccanica CEO UpdateI was hoping for news that deliveries to buyers would start this month but delay happens. I suspect the last remaining issue is USA/Canadian governmental certification. I don’t know whether they’ve been forced to remedy some deficiencies or it’s the sluggish bureaucracy of paper-pushers. Whatever. This probably means I can take delivery of my red beauty in summer when I will be able to drive it everywhere immediately. I was just in conversation with a documentarist about ways and means of exploring Manitoba electrically and documenting my travels. That should be fun, much better than wait-wait-waiting… In the meantime I’m working on getting a bunch of seeds to germinate. Another growing season may keep me sane during the wait.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. I do not care whether my solution is the same as yours. I like to think for myself.
My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. I have been blessed by working in schools where students and school systems have benefited by good, modular software easily installed in most systems.
I have shown GNU/Linux to thousands of students and hundreds of teachers over the years and will continue in some way doing that until I die in spite of the opposition.
