Welcome to the Blackout History Project.
With all the hub-bub today, josh m. marshall of talkingpointsmemo
posted a link to an associates history of two other nyc blackouts. marshall says:
The Blackout History Project...which covers the social history of these events, what happened, people's reminiscences in written and recorded formats, and so forth. The site also has a great deal of information about just how blackouts happen, what these 'grids' are that folks are talking about, and how various forms of electricity deregulation which have taking place over recent years have made an event like we've seen today much more likely.
take it easy nyers and anyone else blacked out.
