This week, we began reading Jim Collins’ Built to Last, a business management classic that attempts to identify why certain ‘visionary’ companies have become both synonymous with technological progress and essential to our daily lives. In it, he unpacks the various myths around success in business (genius idea and genius leader being the most common) and presents an alternative model for success focussed less on individual ideas or genius and more on organizational structure and institutional longevity.
As part of our dive into cell network infrastructure, we were asked to find our IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) and IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) numbers from our own cell phones. On my Android phone, the IMEI was listed in the settings. The IMSI was not listed in settings, but was printed on the SIM itself.
