And now for some electric/tech policy convergence

It is not too much a stretch to bring this whole "convergence" meme to include electricity regulation as well. The digital economy is based on electrons -- cheap, plentiful, reliable electrons, and lots of them. I discuss the need for them in the home state here. In part, this is meant to be a corrective that to the "renewable energy is plentiful and cheap" notion; in larger part, it is meant to be a call "smarten" the grid through IT to trigger more robust market responses to price.
