As the returns came in, ı walked down to Lincoln to see who had come out to visit the memorial on a chilly night. ı talked to a couple from Portland who mused on Berlusconi; young men in MAGA hats who had just voted for the first time in their lives (they were excited ı worked at The Atlantic); and a lifelong Chicagoan, a Cubs fan, who had brought a radio along in her wheelchair so she could hear Hillary win. ı took this photo precisely a year ago, at almost this very moment.

my plane flew over crescent dunes, a 10,347-mirror concentrated solar power plant near las vegas. crescent dunes converts the sun’s radiation into heat energy, then uses that heat to spin a turbine; unlike the more common photovoltaic solar panels which convert radiation directly into chemical energy. csr plants like crescent dunes only make economic sense in dry, dusty climates, and photovoltaic panels are already cheaper in most places anyway, so they may wind up being like autotuning or laserdiscs but infrastructural and for the 2010s. my seat mate was not exactly thrilled when i tried to share these details so you get them now.
