In 2009, when President Barack Obama declared the smart grid the future of electricity — along with a $3.4 billion package of investments for smart grid projects — the term trickled into the lexicon, and capital budgets, of utilities nationwide. For most, it has meant switching over to smart meters, which automatically relay usage information every hour or less.

For most of my childhood, the only place I had encountered unglazed earthen pots was in the garden.

The debate over underground versus overhead power lines typically resurfaces every time a major storm downs lines and triggers outages. But new data suggests all is not as it seems.
When food truck revolutionary and culinary rock star Roy Choi was 24, his mom went to see a fortune-teller. “Don't worry about your son,” the seer told her, “because he is going to be surrounded by people in a parking lot, in a party, always. Whether or not his mom believed the fortune-teller at the time, the vision came true: In 2009, Choi, 38 and then out of work, launched the KogiBBQ food truck with a former co-worker and set in motion the food truck revolution that’s swept across the country.
Bryson, undoubtedly a talented raconteur, maneuvers a subject so scholarly with such wit and wonder that you feel like you’re on the listening end of a most riveting history lesson.
