Now just imagine if these hackers decided to hit an electric grid - I've heard speculation the CP hack was "practice"...I remember the Northeast blackout in 1965 and how it crippled the City - we are now more dependent on electricity for our toys...

Northeast blackout of 1965- Wikipedia
The northeast blackout of 1965 was a significant disruption in the supply of electricity on Tuesday, November 9, 1965, affecting parts of Ontario in Canada and Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont in the United States. Over 30 million people and 80,000 square miles (207,000 km ) were left without electricity for up to 13 hrs.
