How The Internet Works

With this very simple GIF (my first one ever) I am proud to announce a very exciting collaboration with Susan McGregorfrom Columbia University. Susan is Assistant Director of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism and has been writing a paper about Digital Security For Journalists.

Who can read your emails? How to prevent it? What’s the difference between http and https? How does encryption work? These questions are becoming increasingly relevant for all of us, not only for journalists. This is why she asked me to draw some cartoons to illustrate the paper and make it more accessible. Exactly the kind of project I love.

You can read the online version as a Git Book or buy a printed copy from Lulu.

I hope you like it because we are planning to do more!
