Have you ever tried to sing, or play music, with a friend whilst on the phone? It’s surprisingly difficult to stay in time. If your friend is on the other side of the world, then this becomes basically impossible. Fundamental physics, the design of our digital infrastructure, and a smattering of human nature are what give rise to this and many other unusual communications phenomena. This lecture discusses the challenges of all three when trying to create a better Internet.
