New York Technology Council Author Series: Andrew Blum discusses his book 'Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet' at PowerSPACE NYC on October 11 2012.
Everyone thinks they know the Internet. The most powerful information network ever conceived—an indispensable tool and constant companion in both our professional and personal lives. We're all connected but connected to what?
The New York Technology Council hosted acclaimed journalist Andrew Blum for an engaging discussion on his new book TUBES: A Journey to the Center of the Internet, a dramatic story of the internet's development and how it all works. From the room in L.A. where the Internet began to the busiest streets in Manhattan as new fiber optic cable is laid down; from the coast of Portugal as a new transatlantic undersea cable that connects West Africa and Europe is laid down to the Great Pyramids of our time, the monumental data centers that Google and Facebook have built in the wilds of Oregon--Andrew will explain how they all impact our lives and shape the world we live in.
