TCP: Transmission Control Protocol

IP: Internet Protocol; “like the engine powering a car – the engine moves the car, but it has no facilities for knowing when and where to steer, or knowing when and where to stop or speed up (these are the responsibilities of the driver).” (44)

RFC: Requests for Comments

As long as the hosts on the network conform to the general suite of Internet protocols – like a lingua franca for computers – then the transport and Internet layers, work in concert, will take care of everything.(42)

Quotes from Deleuze Guattari:

The rhizome is an antigenealogy. It is short-term memory, or antimemory.
• The rhizome operates by variation, expansion, conquest, capture, offshoots.
• The rhizome is an acentered, nonhierarchical, nonsignifying system with-
out a General and without an organizing memory or central automation. (Galloway, 34)
