🕳 Networks of Philly with Mike Dank
September 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
On Saturday, September 24th at 2 p.m., Mike Dank will give a presentation on the hidden internet infrastructure that surrounds us in Philly. Hope to see you there!
Philadelphia’s network infrastructure is messy, clumsy, and often unseen by the general public. Wandering the streets, you may get a vague understanding of what’s going on—a manhole cover sits unassumingly on the crosswalk, or maybe a mysterious box with an antenna sits high upon a wall in a back alley, humming into the night. Under your feet and above your eye line, data is soaring by through brightly-lit fiber cable and ethereal radio transmission. The city is alive, but few may ever understand to what extent.
