Better Place Has an Ambitious Plan to Kill Gas-Powered Engines

David Pogue interviews Shai Agassi, the founder of Better Place, which is building a network of plug-in stations and electric cars. They have an unusual model. "We sell miles, the way that AT&T sells you minutes. They buy bandwidth and they translate into minutes. We buy batteries and clean electrons-we only buy electrons that come from renewable sources-and we translate that into miles." The interviews a great read and I can't help but get excited by his pie-in-the-sky plans.
