It does seem odd to think that after the hole he dug that his opinion or suggestion endorsing the replacement holds water for anyone. in truth it would seemingly do the opposite.

Meh, it was a freebie deal; I assumed they did their due diligence and because it was risky, they got the terms they got instead of having to pay in. Now they have an interest in a company that might be rudderless that could be looking for a rudder with a GM badge on it.

As for reputation, if you asked 100 people on Read more

Absolutely. I’m not claiming that everything in the report is true either and you’re absolutely right that there are legal and strategic reasons why Nikola wouldn’t respond to short-seller’s claims. But... they did respond... and those responses confirmed the claims and tried to spin them. To me, it seems like a Read more

He’s not the only one. Remember, nobody in Nikola’s management or board corrected his fraudulent statements/videos for YEARS... they’re pretty complicit.

Of the 53 issues that Hindenberg detailed in their report, only ~10 have been responded to by the Nikola team, most of which Nikola admitted to what they were being accused of (e.g. rolling the truck down the hill for their ‘In Motion’ promo video). If those were their strongest 10 responses, it doesn’t bode well for Read more

HA!  Pretend to retire because you care more about the company than yourself.  What a great cover story for his obvious and intentional exit before the shit hits the fan.  Dude is just cashing out before it all craters, mark my words.  Fuckin con artist.

I agree with most of your article but when you said the Nikola was loud I laughed. I’m around HD trucks everyday and I can’t even talk at a normal volume around those things, god forbid the engine fan is on and then you have to move away or risk ear damage. This guy was narrating while right next to the truck, maybe Read more

Never underestimate the possibility that C-suite level GM types will have bonuses attached to Nikola’s stock price and that this sort of investment will lead to big bonuses for the guys at the top. Read more

I appreciate the fact that not everyone is sold on EVs for all purposes. Semis seem like a reasonable use for hydrogen (especially if you can concentrate on the interstate system for refueling stations without having to solve the entire country), and we need to not close any options prematurely.

Interactive media, to me, seems like the final frontier: it’s at once a story you shape, and a story that an author or team can shape for its audience to directly inhabit in. And it’s done in a way that not even film or TV can ever hope to accomplish even with CYOA mechanics. Because players have direct control over a Read more

Actually dont know these guys but both seem pretty smart. I have always said you learn more from arguing with someone who disagrees with you than someone who agrees with you. I was so out of my league here but i left knowing more than when i came.

I think the main problem here is, in the end, building out EV infrastructure is going to be a lot easier and cheaper than building out hydrogen infrastructure. Hydrogen may be an industrial vehicle technology, not a consumer one.

Given that there’s no physical linkage to the drivetrain in a FCEV, isn’t that pretty much a non-issue? You dump in a new compatible fuel cell at the 15-year mark, and recycle the old one. This doesn’t seem insurmountable at all.
