If there are more than one event on a given day, then make the == Header == at the top of the page include a short description of both events so that they will both appear in the summary for that day. Then create two or more === Sub Headers === (Notice the 3 = signs instead of 2) for each separate event on that day.

== First EVent & Another EVent Also ==
=== First EVent ===
First Event details and description text goes here.
===Another EVent Also===
Details for the another event also go right here.

You can also add ==== Sub Sub Headers ==== for an event if there is a lot of information for that event, perhaps someone might want to add a ==== Photos ==== section. The simplest way to add photos is to upload them to the site (you may need to ask for an account to do this). Take a look at the Photos page for a list of EVents that had photos added.

Then just list them in a gallery block.

Additional [[Category:]] tags can be added to the top of the page, we do not use many categories at the moment, but they help to organize pages and help visitors find related pages. For example there might be a Tesla Category and any event with a Tesla at it could have the Tesla category.

President Bush put it as bluntly as ever: "America is addicted to oil... The best way to break this addiction is through technology."

The energy revolution is here, and the next automotive paradigm is in the making.

  • Who is plugged in to next-generation transportation and how will they get around the energy monopolies?
  • Which technologies are promising, and in what timeframe?
  • Where can entrepreneurs and investors find promising returns on investment?

Join us for a lively discussion, exploring the science and business of next-generation automotive propulsion. The panel includes:

Ross Reynolds , news-talk program host, KUOW.

Martin Tobias , CEO, Seattle Biodiesel.
