“Once a cable is in place, it tends to be treated
not as a technological artifact but almost as if
it were some naturally occurring mineral formation
that might be exploited in a number of ways…”
– Neal Stephenson, Mother Earth Mother Board.
LOCAL NETWORK DIAGRAM

A tireless, autonomous worker.
Sturdy, robust, vulnerable, alone.
| OUR BIG BROTHER |
“It’s for our country’s safety
You never know what lies out there.”
