3rd industrial revolution
I am sitting in the dark, the temperature is 36 degrees Celsius. I have a radio and an iPad. I’d like to say that I’m on holiday in the tropics, but I’m in my home in the outskirts of a city and the power has been out for a 6 hours now. I’m a Telstra customer, but there is no mobile or landline service – batteries not included in their infrastructure apparently. If I were part of a local generating group I would be cool and communicating. If my group had a similar power failure I would be drawing from other interconnected communities.
My question is – who has heard of the 3rd industrial revolution, and has anyone seen a recent advance toward it in Australia?
