Jim went to the Atlanta International Auto Show, saw some cars, listened to some press conferences, and generally failed to network with people in the industry. 

Jim did run into Christopher Lawrence of Auto Academics, who was a great source of advice to us when we started Crossthreaded. Check out his channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFhNaleqCBdxE8T6S-PufLA
