This morning rusty solomon woke up in a submarine. Even though he was hundreds of miles away from land, and more than a mile underwater, he was still able to communicate with individuals who were on land, and other ships that were in the water. Why was this possible? Because of a complex telecommunications network that was set up by the military and private contractors.
The vast majority of us will never find ourselves in this extreme situation. However, every single day we benefit from the network that has been established either in our city, or in our place of business, or in our home. These networks allow us to communicate with people who are inside of our immediate community, and also to communicate with individuals miles away from us.
Many times, we take the Internet and the intranet for granted.
