When I came across the world's quickest electric motocycle (link via Flutterby) that can do 0–60 in one second and the ¼ mile in 8, I thought of Gregory, but I'm not sure why. Gregory isn't the crotch-rocket type of guy.
Then I had an idea: the X-Prize guys have it all wrong! They shouldn't be rewarding a more efficient gas-powered car. No—they should be sponsoring an all-electric car race!
Think of it—the Electric Daytona 500! The only limitation—the vehicle has to be powered solely by electrons. No other restrictions on size, weight or shape. The first past the checkered flag after 500 laps wins the prize. Make it an annual event, and I guarentee you'll see rapid electric car innovations.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
