Randall seems to be saying that a startup doesn't need to create a new computer system to service their customers, all they have to do is put up a Facebook page which uses Google to find products and then has Amazon deliver them. The middle layer "Transport" is a joke because Amazon literally ships physical boxes, but the OSI model is not about actual boxes; it's about information and the way the information is presented to the user vs what goes on behind the scenes. But I don't get the part about the horcruxes. Is it just the fact that there are seven of them? Or is there some subtle connection I'm missing here? 05:50, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

(Spoilers alert) Voldemort uses signifying objects of has life, heritage and his school's founders as horcruxes. One problem would be that Google/Amazon would have taken control of two horcruxes, the other that some of the layers are frayed at the sides. Randall should have put his horcruxes in living standards - that was a very dangerous move. Sebastian -- 07:54, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

Is there a meaning of the widths of the layers - not a block or a triangle/pyramid? Are there more layers than the named ones? Or the named ones multiple times? This would correspond to the design of ever more layers, virtualizations, abstractions and overall complexity of computer systems as time moved forward. Sebastian -- 07:49, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

I think Google & Amazon are the grey blob that is slowly absorbing all of the layers 07:55, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
