I had the good fortune to meet up with Andrew Blum at Structure 2012, who was in San Francisco on a tour for his recently published book, Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet. In this brief video, he addresses some of the things he discovered in his global tour of interconnection hubs, landing sites, and other physical components that are part of the vast, yet largely unseen infrastructure that are enabling you to read these words right now.
In addition to being a fantastic emcee at our recent GigaOM Structure event, Joe Weinman is also Senior VP, Cloud Services and Strategy, Telx.
