The reliability of cloud services tends to operate in the perpetual present tense—focused more on maintaining systems right now than preparing for a far future. Ingrid Burrington explores how the reframing of the time scales of computation can change and maybe improve the way your build infrastructure.

Ingrid Burrington writes, makes maps, and tells jokes about places, politics, and the weird feelings people have about both. Much of her work focuses on mapping, documenting, and studying the often-overlooked or occluded landscapes of the internet (and the ways in which the entire planet has become, in effect, a “landscape of the internet”). By examining the political geography and embodied realities of living on a networked planet, she seeks to demystify these technologies for nontechnical audiences and to reframe technology’s underlying politics and power dynamics. Her writing has appeared in the Atlantic, the Nation, Popula, e-flux journal, and other outlets. She’s also the author of Networks of New York: An Illustrated Field Guide to Urban Internet Infrastructure. Previously, Ingrid taught at Rhode Island School of Design, the Cooper Union, and the School for Poetic Computation. Her work has previously been supported by Eyebeam, Data & Society Research Institute, USC’s Annenberg Innovation Lab, and the Center for Land Use Interpretation.
