Today’s e-watering hole: electrons, not water

In traveling to and from New York back in June, we had to stop in Phoenix and then there was a 3+ hour delay on our flight. It turned out that tons of teenagers who were part of some traveling group were on the same flight so they all camped out in the airport during the delay. I was struck by how they gravitated to the electrical outlets, sometimes stretching out on the floor next to them.

One student even plugged in a multi prong surge protector so they could collectively charge more stuff together. See it hanging in the middle near the floor.

This is the new watering hole of society with electrons as the focus.

And for a fun juxtaposition, I’ve put a picture I took of an old-fashioned bicycle at a Brooklyn flea market.Electric watering holeOld fashioned bike
