Read online Tubos: En busca de la geografía física de Internet.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Tubos: En busca de la geografía física de Internet When your Internet cable leaves your living room where does it go 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 journalist Andrew Blum goes inside the Internet s physical infrastructure and flips on the lights revealing an utterly fresh look at the online world we think we know It is a shockingly tactile realm of unmarked compounds populated by a special caste of engineer who pieces together our networks by hand where glass fibers pulse with light and creaky telegraph buildings tortuously rewired become communication hubs once again From the room in Los Angeles where the Internet first flickered to life to the caverns beneath Manhattan where new fiber optic cable is buried from the coast of Portugal where a ten thousand mile undersea cable just two thumbs wide connects Europe and Africa to the wilds of the Pacific Northwest where Google Microsoft and Facebook have built monumental data by Andrew Blum
