A to B Chronicles: Tales from on the Job
Episode 1: Charlie Duke
a story for WIRED's Transportation vertical
I want to collect more stories that aim to illuminate the human minutia, to show just how many cogs, how many daily decisions, how many mishaps and moments of improvisation it takes to keep everything moving around our giant planet. Conversely, it aims to produce an overview effect like the one seeing the tiny earth floating in space has on astronauts, to generate a sense of wonder at the massive networks that we have created and keep running and building together as a species. Zoom in, zoom out. Where are we all Going?
