What a coincidence, I came to this forum just now to post that very same link
Couldn't be anything else could it? Only slightly skewed thing is it was on slashdot today, not in yesterday's headlines.

I think I liked Facebook's April 1 joke: Live InPerson "Pokes" When you clicked on the link it took you to your friend list.

Moira, actually it isn't the first time that public service infrastructure has either been used or considered for something else.
There has been talk on several occasions of supplying "mid band" through electricity supply cables?
