How the Web Works

Coolidge Corner

THURSDAY, March 5 at 7 PM

The Internet wasn’t just there when we woke up one morning. An indirect result of America’s Space Race with Russia, the Internet and the World Wide Web (which are not the same thing!) are complex networks of computers, numbers, and protocols. This class demystifies what’s happening under the hood of your computer so you can better understand where your data come from—and where it’s going.
