Andrew Blum - Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet

Thursday, June 21, 2012 - 7:00pm
Andrew Blum discusses Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet ($26.00). A lot of our day-to-day lives can be found on the Internet, which was once described by an United States Senator as a “series of tubes.” But what is it physically? And how does it work? And where is it, really? The Internet, its material nuts and bolts, is a little explored realm. Until now.

Andrew Blum is a journalist and author whose Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet is the first book-length look behind the scenes of our digital lives and at the physical heart of the Internet itself. Before falling into the Internet's depths, Blum wrote about architecture, design, technology, urbanism, art, and travel — all subjects arising out of his interest in the relationship between place and technology.
