Video: 60 Hudson and the Hidden Internet

3 comments


Documentary filmmaker Ben Mendelsohn recently completed an examination of the economic geography of Internet infrastructure. The resulting short film, Bundled, Buried & Behind Closed Doors, takes a closer look at 60 Hudson Street, the “carrier hotel” in Tribeca that is one of the world’s most concentrated hubs of Internet connectivity. Mendelsohn offers a glimpse of the massive material infrastructure that makes the Internet possible – in other words, the kind of stuff you read about every day here at Data Center Knowledge. Regular readers may recognize at least one of the data center industry figures in the film. This video runs about 10 minutes.

You can also view Bundled, Buried & Behind Closed Doors from on Vimeo. For additional video, check out our DCK video archive and the Data Center Videos channel on YouTube.
