Design Observer Best Book of the Year

Tubes looks behind the scenes of our digital lives at the physical heart of the Internet itself. This is a book about real places on the map: their sounds and smells, their storied pasts, their physical details, and the people who live there. Sharing tales of his on-the-ground reporting, along with lucid explanations about how the Internet works, Blum's eye-opening travelogue offers a unique perspective on the role of technology in our lives.

Críticas:

"An engaging reminder that, cyber-Utopianism aside, the internet is as much a thing of flesh and steel as any industrial-age lumber mill or factory. It is also an excellent introduction to the nuts and bolts of how exactly it all works."--The Economist

"Clever, enterprising . . . "Tubes" uncovers an Internet that resembles nothing so much as a fantastic steam-punk version of itself."--Boston Globe

""Tubes" is an absorbing tale of this new technology, as well as a wonderful account of the Internet's growth and the people who made it possible."--Science News

"A charming look at the physical infrastructure that underlies the Web."--Scientific American

"A fascinating exploration of the physical nature of the Internet, and how the 'network of networks' came to be the way it is."--Shelf Awareness

"Fascinating and unique. . . . [A] captivating behind-the-scenes tour of how (and where) the Internet works. . . . [Blum] has a gift for breathing life into his subjects."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"A satisfying postmodern quest. . . . The history, in particular, is one of the best and most memorable I have ever read."--New Scientist

"Engaging. . . . Full of memorable images that make the internet's complex architecture easier to comprehend. . . . Blum leaves readers pondering questions that would not have occurred to them before and better informed about an innovation most of us take for granted."--The Guardian

"Engaging. . . . Blum is a natural storyteller."--PopMatters

"Enlightening. . . . A zippy history of a phenomenon that, as a society, captivates us, connects us, and vexes us."--Guernica

"Blum paints a vivid picture of the Internet, and gives a sense that it is more than just the mysterious interstitial digital space between your computer and mine. It is, increasingly, the backbone that supports our daily life, and Mr. Blum is an able anatomist."--New York Journal of Books

"Ingeniously beguiling. . . . Blum is a smart, imaginative, evocative writer who embraces the task of making his readers feel the wonder represented by these unprepossessing objects."--Laura Miller, Salon
