I named this blog Ride Lightning mainly as reference to the Metallica album Ride the Lightning and as metaphor for the pace of technological change. I can’t however deny that lightning, being part of the title, has become something of a keyword for me, a trigger for my attention. And today my attention was triggered 😉 There is an article in Wired about a place in New Mexico where the artist Walter De Maria has set up a mile-long grid of 400 steel poles to attract lightning. It’s a permanent work of land art called Lightning Field and you can actually go there on holiday and wait for lightning to strike (happens often in the summer…). It’s apparently quite a spectacle (though I didn’t find any pictures).
