# How the Web Works

The internet is a strange and wonderful place. Not only can one find just about any nugget of information they so desire, but they can also order drunk food, sell their leftover goods, look at pictures of cats being cute and/or funny, among other things. It turns out there is a large following of folk who post content to this "internet". And some even build applications for it. In this chapter we digress from our Clojure fueled frenzy and dig into how the web actually runs underneath the hood. Web developers who are just picking up Clojure can skip this chapter without worry. However, if you are just getting into web development or have not gotten much exposure, it could prove valuable to read this section and ponder its musings.

### REST
