The answer to our 21st century energy needs has to be decentralized, independent, but connected energy production and storage (through solar, wind, thermal and water), with more reliable sources of (clean) energy (e.g. hydrogen, biomass and maybe even nuclear) to even out the inevitable spikes in consumption and production generated by the major parts of the decentralized network.
Any other system is just going to perpetuate the status quo, which got us into this mess.
Today is Wendy Carlos's 80th birthday!
She is a pioneer of electronic music, best known for composing the score of TRON (1982) and for her ground-breaking album, "Switched-On Bach" (1968.) In 1978, she came out publicly as a transgender woman, one of the few public figures to do so at the time.
If you enjoy electronic music today, you can thank Wendy Carlos!
