Es gibt einen alten Wired Artikel von Neal Stephenson über Unterseekabel im Allgemeinen, das FLAG Projekt im Besonderen und eine Weltreise.1

Today, another 120 years later, we take wires completely for granted. This is most unwise. People who use the Internet (or for that matter, who make long-distance phone calls) but who don’t know about wires are just like the millions of complacent motorists who pump gasoline into their cars without ever considering where it came from or how it found its way to the corner gas station. That works only until the political situation in the Middle East gets all screwed up, or an oil tanker runs aground on a wildlife refuge.
