This Ted Talk by Andrew Blum discusses the “Physical Side of the Internet.” It talks about the internet being a fictional place that functions within our realities. It connects people, but people do not fully understand it. He sought to find the reality of the internet. This fits with the discussion, as many of the articles talk about the history and makeup of computers and the internet and how it has helped form connections that may otherwise be impossible. The internet not only connects people in cyberspace, it physically connects people as well.
