Submarine Cable

BBC reports on a cable break in the Mediterranean and that it "could have serious repercussions on regional economies."

The subject of submarine cables is fascinating. Connection to a cable is crucial for participating in today's information economy.

Interesting article about the laying of cable written by Neal Stephenson that appeared in Wired several years ago. Unfortunately the link just has the text; I remember that the printed version had some interesting photos.

Will blog on this more including submarine cable initiatives in Africa, access to cable and bits per capita measurements.
