The Grid: The Fraying Wires Between Americans and Our Energy Future
It's a project which forces visionaries to work with bureaucrats, legislators with storm-flattened communities, moneymen with hippies, and the left with the right.
Today, wind, as we invest great hope in new energy sources--solar, and other alternatives--the grid is what stands most firmly in the way of a brighter energy future.
And though it might not yet be obvious, its most dynamic moments and its most stable ones, this revolution is already well under way.Cultural anthropologist Gretchen Bakke unveils the many facets of America's energy infrastructure, and its essential role in personal and national life.
It's not just that the grid has grown old and is now in dire need of basic repair.
Most of all, her focus is on how americans are changing the grid right now, sometimes with gumption and big dreams and sometimes with legislation or the brandishing of guns.The Grid.
The grid, she argues, one which developed with us: a product of bold expansion, the occasional foolhardy vision, some genius technologies, is an essentially American artifact, and constant improvisation.
America's electrical grid, an engineering triumph of the twentieth century, is turning out to be a poor fit for the present.
Tells--entertainingly, and its potential role in a brighter, perceptively--the story of what has been called "the largest machine in the world??: its fascinating history, its problematic present, cleaner future.
- If we hope to realize this future, we need to re-imagine the grid according to twenty-first-century values.

Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future
He argues that musk--one of the most unusual and striking figures in American business history--is a contemporary amalgam of legendary inventors and industrialists like Thomas Edison, Howard Hughes, Henry Ford, and Steve Jobs.
In elon musk: tesla, spacex, and the quest for a fantastic Future veteran technology journalist Ashlee Vance provides the first inside look into the extraordinary life and times of Silicon Valley's most audacious entrepreneur.
Vance uses musk's story to explore one of the pressing questions of our time: can the nation of inventors and creators which led the modern world for a century still compete in an age of fierce global competition.
More than any other entrepreneur today, musk has dedicated his energies and his own vast fortune to inventing a future that is as rich and far-reaching as the visionaries of the golden age of science-fiction fantasy.
Vance spent over 40 hours in conversation with musk and interviewed close to 300 people to tell the tumultuous stories of Musk's world-changing companies: PayPal, Tesla Motors, SpaceX and SolarCity, and to characterize a man who has renewed American industry and sparked new levels of innovation while making plenty of enemies along the way.
- Written with exclusive access to musk, his family and friends, the book traces the entrepreneur's journey from a rough upbringing in South Africa to the pinnacle of the global business world.
