Here’s something cool. Via GigaOm’s Stacey Higginbotham, the group Telegeography has created an interactive map showing all the undersea fiber cables digitally connecting the world. As Higginbotham reports:
For the truly nerdy, this makes awesome wall art (you can put it next to your spectrum allocation chart!), but if you’re more like the rest of the population, it’s a fun resource to turn to the next time a woman panning for copper cuts a cable, you’re looking for a good place to base a data center, or you want to see how interconnected we are.
You can see and play with the map yourself at submarinecablemap.com.
