The Internet: Almost Done or Just Beginning?
Presentation of Strowger Award for Innovation in Communication
The ARPANET project was initiated fifty years ago and quickly changed the landscape of computing and networks. ARPANET demonstrated that networking was feasible, affordable and desirable, and it created insatiable desire for connection encompassing all segments of society and all regions of the globe. The ARPANET was the seedling for today’s Internet. In this talk, Dr. Crocker will illustrate what the creators of the early Internet saw at the beginning and will discuss the challenges facing us now and in the future.
