    Very interesting article... one speculation is that the 3rd world will 'leap frog' a centralized grid and jump directly into distributed generation like they've skipped land lines and went straight to cell phones.

    It's kind of weird to think that there are more people without electricity today than there were when the first electric light bulb was turned on...

    Unless we wise-up fast the 1st world could end up in the dark as the '3rd world' shines on... our centralized power grid is incredibly vulnerable...
