behind closed doors

'Bundled, Buried & Behind Closed Doors,' documentary film by Ben Mendelsohn
That one came timely—just two days after telegeography, my rant on the other side of information technology, the Internet’s hardware aspect, and its importance for anthropology, boingboing posted on Ben Mendelsohn‘s documentary Bundled, Buried & Behind Closed Doors:

I want to share a short documentary that I recently produced about the hidden Infrastructure of the Internet called Bundled, Buried and Behind Closed Doors. The video is meant to remind viewers that the Internet is a physical, geographically anchored thing. It features a tour inside Telx’s 9th floor Internet exchange at 60 Hudson Street in New York City, and explores how this building became one of the world’s most concentrated hubs of Internet connectivity. [bold emphasis mine]

MENDELSOHN, BEN AND ALEX CHOLAS-WOOD. 2011. Bundled, buried & behind closed doors [documentary film]. New York.
