Session
Fragment Ecology in Online Space

Stemming from a 2011 incident inside of a Facebook data facility in which hyper-cooled air formed a literal (if somewhat transient) rain cloud in the stacks, this talk examines ideas of the cloud, placeless data, and environment as applied to contemporary network infrastructure.

By acknowledging that the network is deeply rooted in place, as well as histories of industry, military, and transit, this talk proposes an ecology of online (and offline) internet spaces.
