When Wire Was King: The Transformation of Telecommunications is a feature-length documentary that puts the telecommunications revolution into historical context. Commerce, technology, entertainment, travel, health, and all societal interaction are now so dependent on secure and reliable telecommunications that, if the plug were pulled, our nation and world would likely collapse. As our digital world grows increasingly complex, it’s critically important to understand what drives, threatens, and governs the technology on which we all depend.

Hudson President and CEO John P. Walters will give opening remarks, followed by a screening of the documentary.
