Network design and methodology, also known as network architecture, is the design of a communication network. It is a framework for the specification of a network's physical components and their functional organization and configuration, its operational principles and procedures, as well as data formats used in its operation. In telecommunication, the specification of a network architecture may also include a detailed description of products and services delivered via a communications network, as well as detailed rate and billing structures under which services are compensated.

Painted fiberoptic cable? I am not affiliated in any way, but thought this was an interesting idea worth sharing.

Interesting! I'm all for increasing the spread of fiber and making high speed internet available to all.

Sidenote: Will it be ZAFO?

CloudFlare and APNIC have launched a free DNS service @ 1.1.1.1 that claims to prevent your ISP from selling your data:
https://blog.cloudflare.com/dns-resolver-1-1-1-1/

The claim to be the "fastest" comes with the caveat of "privacy-first" -- I wonder how it stacks up against DNS services that don't provide any inherent perceived privacy?

On a related note, the service is being hammered by multiple gbps of trash data:

Personally, I've used Google's public DNS for years now, since it's always seemed to be more stable than my ISPs, but this CloudFlare option is really tempting. Handing over literally all of my browsing data to Google is probably not the best idea.

Cloudflare:
1dot1dot1dot1.cloudflare-dns.com. 299 IN AAAA   2606:4700:4700::1001
1dot1dot1dot1.cloudflare-dns.com. 299 IN AAAA   2606:4700:4700::1111

Quad9:
dns.quad9.net.          119     IN      AAAA    2620:fe::fe

I need an ELI5 version of what this does.  What am I doing by doing what they said here?
See https://1.1.1.1/ because it's that simple!
