What’s all this stuff hanging from that utility pole?

Brain Hayes, author of Infrastructure: A Field Guide to the Industrial Landscape (another example of the "short: long" book title fad), talks us through all of the wires hanging from what we commonly call a "telephone pole".

    Done up in only the way that NPR can.  Excellent find Raymond.

    "Only in the way NPR can?" I must agree. They don’t even know that a "poll" is not the same as a "pole".

    Perhaps the next funding drive — or the next batch of tax money — will pay for a dictionary.

    Such a book already exists!?  I was planning on writing one.  I’ve been taking photographs of all sorts of unrecognizable infrastructure that hides in plain sight.  Well, I guess I can scratch one project off my list.
