Packet Switching and Hot Potato Routing
Two things about the video that I found interesting were the packet switching and hot potato routing. The concept of packet switching interested me because regardless of the size or content of the data, it could still be converted into these packets. I liked the hot potato routing because it reminded me of when I was kid playing hot potato. And what it actually is, is just like the game itself, passing traffic system to system as quickly as possible.
