DIY: The Internet

When I used to go to NYU, I assisted in teaching a web class to graduate students. There was one woman in the class who was amazed that I was able to publish her information to the Web so quickly! She thought the Internet was a black box somewhere and that I had to ask permission to put stuff onto it.

Well now you can make your very own black box of Internet, courtesy of the IT Crowd. You can loan folks the Internet but remember to return it to a high tower where it can get the best reception.

Actually all this is is a box with an LED on it. However, do tell us if you’re able to convince anyone that you’ve given them the actual Internet. We’d love to hear about the resulting guffaws.
