Quick teaching topic: communication speed

This three slide presentation uses two communication timing examples – round trip time for an Internet packet from Los Angeles to southern Chile and the time it takes to see and pick up a pen. I use it to introduce Ping, define a millisecond and emphasize the dramatic speed of Internet communication and our knowledge of the brain and nervous system. I intend it to generate interest in subsequent modules on data communication rate.
