[via David Weinberger] Here. “The Phone Company always has a steady source of DC power available. Huge banks of storage batteries backed up by generators, supplying from 23 to 80ma of power on every phone line… for you to use whenever you want! Telco Powered Products convert the 48 Volts DC from the modular jacks in your home or office to a voltage that can be used to power the items you need to get on with your life, even if there’s no power from the electric company.” The solution to our energy problems?!
