The brain trust
Dec 1, 2016

Early in the 20th century, a grand experiment was conceived, the results of which would profoundly impact the course of human civilization. In the fledgling days of communications technology (think switchboard operators and party lines), American Telephone & Telegraph (AT&T) threw its monopolistic might behind the audacious goal of universal communication and connectivity. This was an ambition so far beyond the capabilities of the time that it would require an unprecedented brain trust first to imagine it – and then to invent ways to make it happen.

An Olympic-sized challenge
Aug 1, 2016

THE OLYMPIC GAMES ARE IN A CATEGORY ALL THEIR OWN. Every four years, thousands of the world’s finest athletes converge in one place to compete in dozens of different sports. Millions of spectators gather to cheer them on, and billions of viewers around the globe temporarily abandon normal routine to follow the action in real time. The sheer scale of the event, and the challenges involved in making it happen, are unrivaled.

And while it’s the performance of the athletes that captivates the world, the performance of the support teams behind the scenes at the Olympics is in many ways just as remarkable. The feats they accomplish – under the most intense conditions possible – set the gold medal standard for logistical achievement.
