Dublin Infrastructure Tours (2018 – present)
Since 2018 I have been leading walking tours of Dublin’s internet infrastructure. The tour starts in the city centre, tracing physical aspects of the internet via mobile phone masts and underground fibre optic cables. Next stop is Grand Canal Dock aka Silicon Docks where the European, Middle East and African (EMEA) Headquarters of Airbnb, Facebook, Google and Twitter are located. The tour concludes in the suburbs of Dublin, in an industrial estate that is also home to an Amazon Web Services ‘Availability Zone’.
