Is It Global? seeks to complicate the idea of “the user” in an increasingly interconnected world. While the internet is a truly international and interoperable infrastructure of undersea cables, server farms, and data centers, there remains a multitude of users; of people online. While decisions about the net’s future often come from Silicon Valley, they are increasingly enforced on millions in Africa and Asia. Who is benefiting the most? How do we change the net to most benefit these new users? Is It Global? begins to ask how race, gender, sexual identity, physical location, and more changes our experience of the internet.
