Stories are important. Without them, we lose our connection with each others' realities and greatly limit our understanding.
Here you will find opportunities to see and learn through others' experiences and insights, and hopefully clarify your thinking, consider solutions, exercise empathy, or find your own voice.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Smart Grid
How the Precautionary Principle Can Save the Day (Cynthia Sue Larson)
"Like most Americans, I took only moderate notice of President Barack Obama's announcement on October 27, 2009 of a $3.4 billion commitment to build something called the "smart grid." My ears perked up when Obama spoke about how the new smart grid would be based on a clean energy economy, and I envisioned renewable energy sources powering every home.

It's a debate between looking backwards and looking forward, between those who are ready to seize the future and those who are afraid of the future, and we know which side the United States of America has always come down on."
"Few details were explained at this initial presentation.
