IoT: Keen Smart Vent

Sounds like a great idea... the Keen Smart Vent. I've got problems with hot and cold areas in my house. (It's much better since I've replaced both HVAC systems in the last 8 months or so.) I'd love to see if it could actually lower utility bills rather than just even out the temperatures.

Quote of the Day

Tam in the comments on Les's post about giving up cable and almost giving up internet access, too:

"Okay, yeah, see, that's just crazy talk right there. :p
Keep your priorities straight, man: I can order bottled water from the internet, but I can't get books out of my faucet."

Green for Green

In my latest utility bill, KUB had a generous offer allowing me to support Green Power Switch Pure Solar. For a mere $8 per 50 kWh block, I can pay to have "green" power.

Seriously, why don't we let the markets work? At least this is optional compared to sending my tax dollars chasing after green solutions.
