I usually donate some of my earnings to charities like Unicef (more than $1000 in the last 12 months) but I found something really interesting. Anyone can loan money to people in so called “third world” countries, helping people create their own way of living. This is really great! Instead of giving the fish, help others go fishing. I’m really in favor of this. If someone has the chance of providing for themselves, we should help them.

I’m tired of seeing editorials and articles bashing the great Tesla electric car. In a time that big auto corporations are almost bankrupt, complaining that something inovative and with a reduced budget isn’t doing as well as it could do, is really strange.

Yes these first models will be expensive, but buyers know that, the money they are paying will be invested in further development. And compare that with the cost of development of a regular model… they aren’t spending as much if we compare it.

I really love that car, it’s something people¬†would like to buy, unlike those strange “futuristic”¬†but horrible concepts that other brands launch. I don’t care if they will be cheap, or have great mileage, I would never buy them!

Support innovation! I hope electric motors get more support than other giant companies that can’t control their expenses.
