The Kid Should See This

How does the internet work?

How does the internet work?! The World Science Festival explains it…

The video lets you ride shotgun with a packet of data—one of trillions involved in the trillions of Internet interactions that happen every second. Look deep beneath the surface of the most basic Internet transaction, and follow the packet as it flows from your fingertips, through circuits, wires, and cables, to a host server, and then back again, all in less than a second.

Next: Take a journey to the bottom of the internet to see the thin underwater cables that make it possible. And from the WSF in the archives: Bobby McFerrin demonstrates the power of the pentatonic scale.
