I attended a fun talk at UCLA recently by Vint Cert, who is Google's Chief Internet Evangelist, and considered by many as one of the fathers of the Internet. Through humor, interesting stories, and wise perspective, he shared his thoughts on the history and the future of the Internet. You can watch the full video at the CNSI website.
Cerf actually studied at both Stanford and UCLA and was a co-designer of TCP/IP, a foundational protocol for the Internet. Of his many honors, he received the Alan Turing award for his influential work.
Below are my notes on the talk.
