12 Sep GeoTel Featured in Belgium Museum Exhibit
Sept. 12, 2012 – GeoTel Communications’ telecom infrastructure maps of the Internet will be featured at the Archive Centre Mundaneum in Belgium for the museum’s Renaissance 2.0 exhibit set to be on display October 9, 2012 through January 7, 2013. Specifically, GeoTel will provide maps of the Internet showing international subsea telecom fiber optic cables, similar to those by GeoTel which were featured in Fortune magazine earlier this year.
This science and technology exhibit will feature key technologies that have developed throughout history and how these technologies have infiltrated and changed the way people approach their day-to-day lives. The exhibit will start by illustrating the concepts and ideas of Paul Otlet, the brainchild of the Internet and founder of the museum, and cover everything in between–from the evolution of computers to the development of the Internet we see today.
It is expected that GeoTel’s images will appear next to some of Paul Otlet’s drawings done in the 1920s to provide a historical perspective showing just how far ahead of the time his visions really were.
“GeoTel is proud to be involved in this exhibit illustrating the significant points in history that have contributed to how technology has morphed over time and transformed how we interact in the world today,” said GeoTel’s CEO, Dave Drazen.
GeoTel is just one of a number of different companies like Google, IBM and Unisys to contribute and sponsor this exhibit.
