I almost wish the world didn’t have access to this information…

Talk about a security risk…a suicide bomber decides to take out a few dozen innocents in a marketplace and it gets 5-7 minutes on CNN. But an undersea event that severs these cables won’t get any timer on CNN because there won’t be any way for CNN to bring us the story.

Hyperbolic? Maybe.

This map brought my geek self back to this fantastic Neal Stephenson article in Wired from 1996…totally worth a re-read.
