I will describe several different ways of thinking about the AdS/CFT correspondence.  In particular I'll discuss how locality in d+1 spacetime dimensions can arise from a d-dimensional theory.  I will also highlight major open problems, including the black hole information paradox, and strategies that may lead to its resolution.
