Networking, The Nerdy Kind

  • James Bucanek
Chapter

Abstract

You might use (social) networking to crowd-source the perfect color for your bookshelves or find a great place to stay on your next trip, but “networking” means something altogether different to computer engineers. A data network allows computer systems and devices to directly exchange information, and is largely what makes portable devices useful. (How sad would your iPhone be if it couldn’t place telephone calls, get text messages, surf the web, send e-mail, or download apps?)
