The Many Hats of Rob Reiner
By EV World
Rob Reiner gained national recognition playing the hippie son-in-law, "Meathead" in the 70's sitcom, "All in the Family." He parlayed that fame into a successful career as a Hollywood writer and producer whose credits include a long list of theatrical hits including "Stand By Me", "Ghosts of Mississippi" and "The Princess Bride."
Although suffering from a chest cold, Reiner fulfilled his commitment as the featured keynote speaker at the 20th Electric Vehicle Symposium, held in Long Beach, California. His largely extemporaneous remarks where punctuated with self-effacing humor and the occasional cough, which did not detract, however, from the message he wanted to convey: that what the delegates to EVS 20 were doing is extraordinarily important to the future, not only the long-term security and sustainability of America but of the larger world.
EV World was fortunate enough, with the blessing and support of the Electric Drive Transportation Association, to be able to record Mr. Reiner's remarks, which we have digitized to the MP3 format, enabling our readers to not only listen to his speech on-line, but also to play them off-line either on your personal computer or in any MP3 player.

The introduction of the MP3 audio format marks EV World's transition away from the RealPlayer streaming format on which we have relied for the last six years to what has clearly become the dominate on-line and off-line sound format. All future EV World audio interviews and conference recordings will be made available to EV World Premium subscribers in this format.
Feel free to download these files to your computer or MP3 player.We ask, however, that you do no share them since we use access to these files as an incentive for our readers to become EV World Premium subscribers, thus ensuring that we can continue to provide this service to you, our paid subscribers.
