This gallery tells the story of the Information Age over the last two hundred years.
Once, you could only send a message as far as the eye could see, or as fast as a horse could gallop. But now the planet is criss-crossed by cables and surrounded by satellites. You can talk to anyone, at any time, search the internet and stay in touch.
