So Internet is the computing structure I like. It's basically a 12,000 mile long bus or 24,000 mile ring that threads the globe. It's a single switch that allows machines to alternatively be clients or servers or peers to communicate with one another. But it's formed as a network of networks. Like the telephone, it's a wonderfully simple general structure. Very simple rules govern its complex behavior.
