Chelsea Sexton, Bill Nye to Speak at Plug-In 2009 Conference
The second annual Plug-In 2009 conference is coming up, scheduled for August 10-13 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Southern California.
It's mostly an industry thing, although they are featuring 'Public Night' on August 11. For $10 you can check out a few vehicles on display, including the Chevy Volt, a Ford 550 plug-in hybrid, a Ford Escape plug-in hybrid, and a Plug-In Toyota Prius. They've also lined up the following speakers for that night:
--High profile plug-in vehicles advocate (and cutie) Chelsea Sexton
--Documentary filmmaker Chris Paine (Who Killed the Electric Car?)
--TV director (and former "Thirtysomething" star) Peter Horton
--Bill Nye "The Science Guy".
Government giveaway guru Matthew Lesko had also been scheduled to speak, but organizers figured one lanky and unfunny television spaz-case in a bow-tie was plenty.
