Californians just don't get North Dakota, it seems. Witness this critique of North Dakota's neovictorian idea of using hydrogen-filled lighter-than-aircraft to provide wireless access for hundreds of miles. See, North Dakota is so impressively flat -- moreso than even the ocean on a calm day -- that any sort of poles projecting up from the ground cause residents to completely FREAK OUT. Trees? We don't got any. Too scary. We need balloons, despite the torrent of plummeting electronic equipment and 'oh-the-humanities' that will inevitably follow.
