Smart Grid and V2G Weather Advisory: IBM Twitterstorm Coming
Many SGSB readers, though well versed and skilled in the ways of technology, might nevertheless say, "what the hell is a Twitterstorm?"
It's a fair question, and my simple answer is it's an online conversation and Q&A session between a bunch of folks, conducted 140 characters at a time. Maybe by haiku. This is no place for the verbose, and maybe because of that, it should be information dense and entertaining.
As the title of this post indicates, the central focus is on EVs, PHEVs and their interaction with today's grid and the emerging Smart Grid. The Smarter Planet folks at IBM are hosting it this coming Monday, September 20th, and you can see details HERE on how to join in on the fun.
Please make it if you can. No umbrella necessary.
