A leading scholar of media archaeology, Markus Krajewski explores the history of globalization by examining several large-scale projects that, at the beginning of the twentieth century, shared a grand yet unachievable goal: bringing order to the world. He shows how media, technological structures, and naked human ambition paved the way for global-scale ventures that created the first “world wide web.”
