Internet infrastructure explained in just 5 minutes? Yes, with humor - and kittens

What are the seven OSI layers that are commonly used in networking? What's a domain name server? What's peering? Even if you know, could you explain all that and more in less than 6 minutes?

NPR news app developer Jeremy Bowers did just that during this crowd-pleasing "lightning talk." If you're curious what a talk about Internet infrastructure might sound like at auctioneer-hyped-on-caffeine speed, this video's for you.

Presented at the 2014 Computer Assisted Reporting and captured on video by La Nacion Data Argentina. You can see Bowers' transcript on GitHub and his slides on Google Docs.
