Beautiful Thing #2

Sometimes I forget that the Internet is based on something physical. All these signals float through the air and it seems magical, this cloud, but the the reality is that most of its physical. T1 lines. Fiber optic cables the size of my waist crossing oceans, server farms that need as much electricity as cities. Here’s a map of the Internet. If anything, it shows that when I’m on it, I’m really not alone.
