Wade Roush writes about the Bay Lights Project, a remarkable endeavor to put 25,000 individually addressable LEDs on the cables of the Bay Bridge. I think it would be cool if they opened up the algorithms to reviewed contributions, especially if they ran at a set time like between 2-4 AM — far from “public-playground interpretations” I think the creativity of the Bay Area (and beyond) would delight everyone involved. But in the meantime the non-profit needs to raise a fair amount in a short period of time to have a chance: you can donate to the Bay Lights here.

  1. Sounds like an amazing (and shiny) idea. Opening it up to allow reviewed contributions and/or set times would make it a lot more immerse for the public.

    I just donated the last few dollars in my Paypal account to help them along.

  2. I saw this awhile ago on KTVU I think, what I liked the most is that the lights will not distract/be visible by the drivers (from the vehicle area of the bridge). So looking forward for this, thx for sharing. longtime fan xxomeli
