    I remember an expression of shock on my IT colleagues faces when I named Access point properly for the first time (instead of modem, or ‘this internet thing’). 🏋️‍♀️🏋️‍♀️🏋️‍♀️
    You would be perfect for narrating Grimms brothers tales Ian. Would pay to hear that actually! 🔥🔥🔥

  5. I was always confused between *WAN* and *Internet* from last 7 years. Today my doubt is cleared ❤️

  6. I went to study IT at uni because I wanted to understand how Internet works. Now you just shared this with the world! This is amazing!!! Internet is enabling people to understand the internet all over the world 🙈

  7. Would love a similar video but about how the computer and the operating system really work and how the processor and the gpu work together to make things happen. If someone has a link to such a video, it’d be really appreciated.
