Any fun nuggets from those two courses about "the Internet" ? Was it a technical course or more historical?

I recently read The Victorian Internet which is about the advent of the telegraph. And Ben has recommended Where Wizards Stay Up Late: The Origins of the Internet as a similar book on the origins of the internet.

Just curious if you encountered anything in those courses that might be fun/surprising to the rest of us.

It was technical. I did take a super interesting course in college about the theory of computing. An ex buddhist monk taught it. There was a lot of questions about life that came up.
