Over the past four weeks we have read numerous articles on the implications on the blackout. For the most part the really serious stuff concentrates on areas such as how it affected businesses, the economic implications, as well as the need to negotiate the tenuous tightrope

it may have caused commuters, and the micro, "as it happens" aspects of the blackout. Largely the weightier issues were the exclusive domain of organizations. William Thorsell
