I Tried, and Failed, to Find Out Where My Electricity Comes From

An excellent start for explaining why power networks cannot be analyzed or visualized as linear information systems. We can use this simplification to start explaining to people how fuels are converted to usable energy, but in reality it falls short for modeling + understanding power usage.

Smart grid initiatives also start adding in another layer of dynamics, feedback loops + interconnectivity/dependency with increased communication networks + real-time control.
