The Internet Shouldn't Work
Come learn about what actually goes on in our favorite series of
tubes! We'll discuss the internet's structure, routing, and protocols,
with demos and hands-on experiments. No prerequisites presumed!
After this you'll know why you get spam with only garbage characters and nothing to sell, how Comcast can tell that you're pirating all of Season 2 of Arrested Development off Bittorrent, why all this trust lets you read your friends' AIM conversations or hijack YouTube, and more.
Bring a laptop so you can play with some of the utilities we'll be using.
