                            George Varghese
    Internet is a vast network glued together using routers
    Every packet you send traverses Internet routers
           Routers look at your packets and decide where to send them
    Problem: millions of users, billions of billions of packets
           Routers need to be efficient and fast
    George has invented numerous algorithms for routers
           Used by all major router companies (Cisco, Juniper, etc.)
    Every time use you use the Web, George’s algorithms
     direct your packets
