Rapier at TOD takes apart Silicon Valley venture capitalist Vinod Khosla and his plans for pushing an ethanol-based energy economy here.

When Khosla wrote tangentially on this topic at HuffPo a while ago, I commented to the post something to the effect he should concentrate on electronics (his forte) and perhaps look into the electric car instead.
Seeing as you are an electrical engineer with quite a track record at Sun, what do you think of the electric car?
No response to that one. Apparently others have had better success at going to-to-toe with Khosla.

Now, Khosla apparently wants to debate Rapier after reading today's post (news travels fast) so I look forward to the fireworks that will ensue.

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.usCorny I know, but I don't think Khosla has a kernel of truth to stand behind, while Rapier has my ear based on his surgical husking.
