Lars U. Scholl uses this chapter to examine the impact of wireless and telecommunication on the globalisation of the international shipping industry before 1914. The chapter discusses the history of wireless communication:- relaying messages; saving ships and lives; improving business efficiency; reducing the role of the shipmaster; and assisting imperialist infrastructures. It concludes by asserting that wireless communication drastically altered the maritime landscape on a global scale, a multifaceted tool that could be utilised to further business, imperialism, and conflict alike.
