Obligatory Dec 1996 Wired article by Neal Stephenson about the building of FLAG:


(it is really worthwhile to read, especially for everyone who liked the Cryptonomicron. )

Blog post [http://www.telegeography.com/telecom-maps/submarine-cable-ma...] includes low res, non interactive version of the map.

Yeah I would love to buy one $250.00 bucks for a map? Am i paying for the cable or just the map?

I'd love to buy one too, but it would be expensive at $50, $250 is insane.

Printing it on 16th Century vellum, maybe?

It would be cool if the interactive map would actually show up...

When it does it's really pretty, very old fashioned looking

It would be cool if there was some way to see the diff of what lines were added or under construction since the last publication of this map.

Hmm that would be sweet, this map shows the year the cable was commissioned: http://www.submarinecablemap.com/

I prefer Greg's cable map: http://www.cablemap.info/
