The Internet is Not a Pipe and Bandwidth is Bad:

… we have been modelling out networks at the wrong logical layer, and have fundamentally misunderstood the control theory around how data is managed.

With the right mathematical “lens” to see the time-based effects, a new and much simpler way of building and managing networks emerges.
