Cyburbia Doubt

've had a recurring fantasy since I was a teen: what would we do if the power went out? I took up the violin instead of the electric guitar; relished occasional power-outages during winter storms, reading by a fire on the grate; scratched my head at the newest technologies that promised to make a "smarter planet" (eh-
hem - IBM - yeah, right).

Well, it seems that a growing number of academics and social scientists are catching on to my fantasy. See what you think.
