The recent book Green Lighting by yours truly, Seth Leitman and Bill Brinsky continues to gain steam, and the three of us had a great conversation with Remy C. of Rock The Reactors last night in Westchester, New York, taking many questions from the audience.

There were many questions about light emitting diodes, dimmers and what to do with spent or unwanted bulbs (!).
