Event Description:

Have you ever wondered how those emails from rich Nigerian princes get here all the way from Nigeria? Or how you can watch that 20 minute long Vine compilation while you’re 35,000 feet above ground? Each and every one of us uses the internet in our daily lives, but how often do you think about what’s going on behind the screen? During this talk, I’ll explain the technology behind the internet and clear up some common misconceptions about it while trying to use as little technical jargon as possible.
