Zombie Cable Hunt

From Our Networks 2047

Join the Urban Network Archeology Guild in a local hunt for 'zombie cables': decommissioned or forgotten cable infrastructure from the turn of the millennium. These adventurous gleaners of the past's lost bandwidth glut will teach participants how to sense, diagnose, and potentially recover zombie cables, entering them into the Great Lakes Cable Wiki where they will hopefully be put to future use again. Our walk will involve approximately 2 hours of outdoor walking/rolling/cycling in mixed terrain. All necessary equipment will be loaned (but feel free to bring your own volt meter if you have one that you especially like). Sunscreen recommended.
