The Web, embedded chips. That's why Kockinen and the FAA chief are going to be in the air at 7 p.m. EST rather than midnight. That's when the planes' chips roll over.

I was in direct contact with an engineer at Bonneville Power two weeks ago and he confirmed that power generation/distribution is set mostly to LOCAL time. There are a few exceptions where grids cross timezones, and one or the other is picked as the standard. I don't believe there are *any* grids running on UTC.
