“WHAT IS THE INTERNET?”
“The Internet is a big place.” — Jason Sewell
THE INTERNET, WHAT IS IT?
Although this definition doesn’t do the Internet justice, to put it into simple terms, the Internet is a massive network of networks, a networking infrastructure.
OKAY, BUT WHY SHOULD I CARE?
The Internet affects and facilitates nearly every aspect of modern life. It is a worldwide system of computer networks, in which computers and their users are able to communicate with each other globally. With the Internet, a vast amount of information is conveniently one Google search away. The Internet enables us.
HOW DOES THE INTERNET WORK?
The Internet has one simple job: to move data from one place to another. An easy way to visualize how the Internet works is that it works in a similar manner to our postal service, delivering information to and from places. The majority of data is transferred in “packets.”
