News, Reviews & Discussion of EEStor Inc. & Quantumscape Corporation
I just spent 10 minutes with Jim Kofman trying to size up where his head is with the EEStory. Before I asked my first question, he mentioned that the new Jamin Patrick spent his first day onsite at EEStor today. Patrick's report to Kofman was everyone was positive, enthusiastic and helpful. Not surprising.
I asked Kofman what gave him confidence in the ZENN enterprise at the moment. He talked about their control of EEStor, the team they are…Continue
According to long time EEStory follower Glo-Bug, Jim Kofman has signaled that a Press Release will be issued prior to market open Monday indicating the EEStor deal is completed and ZENN now presumably owns 67% of EEStor. GB says JK said this is a deal everyone wanted and that--take a deep breath---now ZENN can start to figure out what EEStor has. This translates roughly into buying a potato factory to see…Continue
After years of funding and orchestrating EEStor testing failure after testing failure only to resolve to take over control of EEStor to get the testing they need, ZENN has decided to take a break from all their success and issue themselves 800,000+ shares of stock options.
Skeptics will say this is not proof of third party confirmation of EEStor layers. Believers will…Continue
ZENN has published a very information dense press release this morning covering many of the details of a complicated attempt to merge EEStor and ZENN. Who gets what, how much and when are not exactly tied down according to the release because it the deal is "subject to a number of conditions." Thanks to this, the complexities of the deal can be safely placed to…Continue
Just when you thought everything was rock solid and EEStor was about to launch into…
There has been a lot of exciting news in the EEStory lately and I think it is appropriate that I convey how it has impacted me and my beliefs at this point. I'll start by saying that if you come to EEStory today-- fresh as a newbie-- and if you ask two related questions, "Does Dick Weir's energy storage technology work? Could it ever…Continue
Have you ever gone into a place and felt a subtle but powerful absence but couldn't quite put you finger on what was different? That's the way I felt over the last couple weeks and then finally realized the absence was that of veteran EEStory participant PeterP. He stopped posting on Nov 17, i.e. after the Dave Evans visit to EEStor. Briefly, due to some offline…Continue
More than a few were confused by the claims I recorded in my last blog article. What does it mean? What is its significance? These questions apparently will have to be answered over the course of time. But let's start with a very basic, fundamental concept of EEStory: transparency.
Many of you, like me, have watched the EEStory drama unfold over the past 5…Continue
Occasionally, you have an idea which you think might be good but you aren't sure how good it is or what impact it could possibly have. Cautious people sit on the idea and hope it grows like a mushroom in the dark. Adventurers throw it up on twitter and see what reaction it brings from the masses. But…
Everyone by now should be aware that for a very long time, I've been bitching and moaning and complaining and grumbling about how ZENN should conduct 3rd party testing of EEStor samples. Specifically, I have been proposing that ZENN publish their test protocols, test gear, test…Continue
About a month ago, after Dave Evans completed his initial tour and overview of EEStor and after Weir had demonstrated his test setups and testing protocols, both men adjourned to the conference room for a visit to the white board. Evans started drawing and according to Dick Weir said, "I'm going…Continue
Anyway, for fun, I came across this November 2005 ZENN press release. That is 8 years ago people. Some of you weren't even retired back…Continue
I think it is worthwhile to remind everyone about possible outcomes from the testing from Evans' capacitor. Ordinarily, I wouldn't go to the trouble but last night Rudyard Istvan stopped by chat and strongly insinuated (albeit mildly ambiguously) that he had spoken to Dave Evans and received the following idea: that Evans is delayed in publishing negative information about EEStor until he can get…Continue
After ZENN's August announcement of a plans to raise money and to buy out Kleiner (i.e., "the vendor") shares in EEStor, we encountered a floundering set of 3rd party testing events which didn't inspire passion among EEStory observers. The purported dog and pony show…Continue
After reaching Dave Evans this morning in his office, I was able to acquire a brief update on some of the issues of interest to readers here with his testing of EEStor samples. I guess the main issue to me personally is in the disclosure department. Recall that Evans originally said he would not…Continue
