1.  Smart Meters

    Apropos of our discussion, here's an
    interesting video presentation on Youtube
    about smart meters and their privacy risks.


    Those interested in smart meters may be
    interested in a pair of free e-mail
    newsletters, Fierce Energy and Fierce Smart
    Grid, that frequently cover the business and
    regulatory aspects of smart meter and smart
    grid deployments.



2.  Keith Tantlinger, inventor of the stackable
    shipping container that revolutionized the
    transportation of goods, died last week.


    A brief interview with Marc Levinson on NPR's
    Talk of the Nation discussed Tantlinger and
    the container.


    Levinson is the author of "The Box: How the
    Shipping Container Made the World Smaller and
    the World Economy Bigger".


3.  Another Book by Marc Levinson:

    The Great A&P and the Struggle for Small
    Business in America


    An excellent interview of Levinson on WHYY's
    Fresh Air with Terry Gross:


4.  The Book about how mega-farming made tomatoes
    taste like cardboard...

    Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture
    Destroyed our Most Alluring Fruit

    ... was actually written by Barry Estabrook; I
    had erroneously attributed it to Marc

    Air with Terry Gross:
