Get out your Sharpie and mark it on your calendar. On October 20th from 8pm-9pm, San Francisco will celebrate "Lights Out San Francisco. " Residents will be encouraged to turn off all unnecessary lights and electrical appliances (remember your old foe Lopomo?) for that hour (and hopefully longer) to show support for efficient use of energy.

I participated in a Lights Out night in New York about five years ago, and it was awesome. My neighborhood, Fort Greene, had lots of buy in, and it was fun to see candlelight flickering from apartment windows and people chatting outside on their stoops. The blackout was even better

If you don't live in San Francisco, start a "Lights Out Night" in your town. October 20th seems like a good time--ripe for reading ghost stories by the light of a jack-o-lantern or channeling the ghost of Nikola Tesla.
