What would happen if everything we do in the world were to suddenly go online? We got the answer to that question early this year, when the global coronavirus pandemic forced almost everyone and everything to move online: commerce, meetings with colleagues and customers, classroom learning, appointments with the doctor, entertainment, and live gatherings, such as Akamai's upcoming digital event, Edge Live | Adapt, on November 10 and 11.

Ronald Graham and the Magic of Math
