How the Internet works Video Series from code.org

Code.org announced a set of videos about “How the Internet works.” today. This set of short (6-7 minutes long) videos explain many of the key concepts that make the Internet work. Lots of graphics and narration by engineers from some of the big high tech companies and some real computer pioneers – Vint Cerf for the win! Presenters are very diverse as well which I see as a huge positive. They're very well done. I’ll be using them with my students.
Full list of videos:
  1. Wires, Cables, and WiFi starring Google engineer Tess Winlock 
  2. IP Addresses and DNS
    starring the co-founder of the Internet Vint Cerf and
    Microsoft engineer Paola Mejia
