    Story
    (94)

    Almost everything about our day-to-day lives - and the broader scheme of human culture - can be found on the Internet. But what is it physically? And where is it really? Our mental map of the network is as blank as the map of the ocean that Columbus carried on his first Atlantic voyage. The Internet, its material nuts and bolts, is an unexplored territory. Until now. In Tubes, Andrew Blum goes inside the Internet's physical infrastructure and flips on the lights, revealing a fresh look at the online world we think we know.

    Understand The Internet


    What did you like best about this story?

    Andrew Blum's curiosity evolved into an intriguing tale about the history and physical infrastructure of the internet. It's a must read for anyone in the IT infrastructure business and a great understanding for non-techies.


    What about Andrew Blum’s performance did you like?

    I really like how Blum personalized the story with character development of the architects, builders and maintainers of the internet giving it a human feel and spirit.
