Solar Decathlon winners, Team Austria, designers of LISI, above (photo: Jason Flakes; courtesy of DOE), say solar energy is so commonplace there’s no longer any need to show off the panels. Today’s DnA looks at the state of solar in California. With Sebastian Ortner, Bernadette del Chiaro, Jeremy Levine, Mary Leslie and Mark Toney. Plus, The Asylum author Simon Doonan talks about “craptowns”, madness and why rich people don’t make great fashion designers. On our second Everything Talks, Tom Saunders channels a Vitamix 6300 as it tries to flirt with a Rancilio Silvia espresso maker.
