Principles of Communications - week 1/L1 10/10/2019

Aside from a visit from the Amicus Curiae (friend of the supreme court judge:),
L1 started with intro to routing. Refer people to last year's network course, and the lectures on the network.

Slide 3 has a network graph with nodes numbered 1-12, and a routing table for node 1. This is a confusing picture as it has [] against some of the entries (both for some next hops, and some destinations) so a) its a forwarding table, not a routing table; and b) it is showing the outcome of some computation - As far as I can recall, the [] represent where the SPF algo tie broke between two routes.

corporate/brand top level domains

was teaching about internet standards process today, and was asked about gTLDs being handed out to the likes of Apple etc - here's an interesting set of data about the success of that process - it seems also to have caused some political debate:-)
