How the Internet works

The renowned Ben Hammersley will explain How the Internet works.

It's the most powerful thing on the planet. It controls our lives, and runs our economy. It touches every minute of your day, and has been called the most complex machine ever built. We entrust it with our money, our relationships, our very thoughts, and yet most of us don't know how it works. But no longer! With words, pictures, and not a little cabaret, the renowned Ben Hammersley will explain How the Internet works.
