Have you ever wondered how the Internet’s physical infrastructure works? Who owns it and why that might matter? Please join us for the debut of CUP’s latest Urban Investigation:
“The Internet Is Serious Business”
CUP Teaching Artist Helki Frantzen and students from City-As-School worked with the People’s Production House Digital Expansion Initiative to produce this video about the huge networks of cables, routers, and servers that we call the Internet. The screening will be followed by a short panel discussion with spectrum advocate Dharma Dailey, People’s Production House Policy Director Josh Breitbart, and City Council Member and Chair of the NYC Broadband Advisory Committee Gale Brewer.
