My five year old: “The Internet is the Computer”

I was playing KEXP on my computer over the weekend, and I say to my five year old “Hey isn’t it cool we can play a station from the Internet on the computer?”

She looks at me like I’m stupid.

On the computer?” she says, quizzically.

“Yes.” I say.

She laughs. She thinks I’m being funny. “Daddy,” she says, “the Internet is the computer”.

To a five year old the computer and the network are redundant terms.
