I am Aaron Choate. I live in Austin, TX with my wife Cara Fealy-Choate and our dogs, and our cats, and our chickens, and our guinea fowl, and….

I have enjoyed an extensive career in digital libraries development, digitization,  digital preservation, internet & web applications and technology integration program management.  I now work at the University of Texas Libraries as the Director of Digital Strategies guiding our exploration of the impact technology innovations have on our systems and services and the people that rely on them.

During my “spare” time, I work to tinker with sustainable technologies, machine learning, robotics/automation, obsess over advances in transportation and design and build custom electric vehicles.  Once we even had a company that did this work for others — REVOLT Electric Vehicles .

I continue to support the electric vehicle enthusiast community in Austin, TX through AustinEV as well as national electric vehicle efforts through the EVTradinpost and support for the EVAlbum.

I have a continued fascination with sustainable technologies, automation, connectivity, electric vehicles and transportation.

  1. Hey Aaron, I just wanted to make a post thanking you for all the years of maintaining EVTradinPost. I’ve been visiting periodically for the last decade or more. Nothing really to say but THANK YOU!

  2. I’ve been frequenting the EV trading post for 20’ish years. Thank you so much for providing this service for so long. I hope a resolution can be reached. Either way, Thank You!

  3. Mr. Choate,

    Thank you very much for this website. I regret the loss of the Trading Post, but completely respect your decision and appreciate your concern for those taken in by scams.


  4. wow! Just saw that you took EV Tradin Post down! I’ve been visiting for 10+ years, one of my favorite places on the internet! I was finally able to buy a car listed on there in 2016, a solar-powered pickup truck and buying that was one of the best decisions of my life! Thanks so much for all your hard work keeping the site up to date. If you ever want to bring it back online on a new platform I would be willing to help. I’ve been a moderator for email lists before as well as working in IT for 15+ years.
