Space weather produces  a wide range of effects on technology that includes damage to satellites and disruption of radio communication.  The effects also extend to systems on the ground including power systems and pipelines.  This talk will review the history of geomagnetic  effects on ground-based technology, starting with the telegraph system, through to modern communication cables, power systems, pipelines and railways and show how knowledge about past effects is being used to protect the infrastructure that is critical for modern society.
