A Journey to the Center of the Internet
Copyright © 2013 by Andrew Blum. Published by arrangement with Ecco, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers
Your Internet cable plugs into your wall. Then where does it go?
Andrew Blum adopts a strong, authoritative voice in this broad and complex exploration of the physical makeup of the Internet. Readers who prefer visual representations may find themselves impatient with Blum’s exploratory approach, though his prose is lovely and leavened with dry humor. But others will find the book lively, strange and fascinating. getAbstract recommends Blum’s insights to scholars of cyberculture and modern society, historians of technology, innovators, and the intellectually curious in every field.
In this summary, you will learn
- What the physical side of the Internet manifests,
- How the physical Internet relates to the Internet you use and
- What this relationship means.
