2014 Internet Hall of Fame Interviews: Dai Davies

I think the thing which I see as being real­ly impor­tant is there are a lot of still quite rou­tine jobs, where peo­ple are adding very lit­tle val­ue oth­er than mov­ing infor­ma­tion from one place to anoth­er. And I think that aspect of work will become increas­ing­ly rare in the same way that for exam­ple if you look back say forty, fifty years ago, fac­to­ry work con­sist­ed of rel­a­tive­ly rou­tine things.

When you have an informed pub­lic then you can real­ly advance soci­ety. And when you have a misinformed pub­lic, it could be a recipe for dis­as­ter. And that one of the cloudy parts of the Internet is how much misinfor­ma­tion is pro­lif­er­at­ing out there and tak­ing on a life of its own.

I was lucky enough to start off as one of the first ISPs in Hong Kong back in 1995. I was head­ing up the Internet ser­vice providers asso­ci­a­tion local­ly. And that kind of led us to have a cen­tral or orga­nized body to dis­cuss with the gov­ern­ment on Internet reg­u­la­tions or telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions issues among us. And that kind of opened the door to many of the issues that we are fac­ing today like copy­right, pri­va­cy, secu­ri­ty, and even just Internet accessibility.

I start­ed one of the ear­ly Internet ser­vice providers back in the mid to late 1990s. And then work­ing with oth­er peo­ple, we basi­cal­ly brought the com­mer­cial Internet to Hong Kong from the days of nar­row­band con­nec­tiv­i­ty, modems, dialup, to broadband.

Tim Berners-Lee invent­ed the Web at CERN. He was a young guy at CERN. He kind­ly said I was a men­tor to him, because I was doing this oper­a­tion of intro­duc­ing and teach­ing pro­to­cols. I taught him sock­et pro­gram­ming and that sort of thing. And I noticed him as a young…eager beaver. And I watched the process of him invent­ing the Web, single-handedly. So, that’s the high­light and I would say that was­n’t a result…you know, direct result of what I did, but cer­tain­ly I helped to cre­ate the ground for him, the envi­ron­ment for him, to make that inven­tion at CERN. Because CERN was not a par­tic­u­lar­ly fer­tile place.

Probably the biggest con­cern is if the Internet gets bro­ken in pieces. And one of the best things now is that the Internet is one. It’s unique and you can con­nect, end-to-end, every­where. We have start­ed see­ing in places like China that they have their own DNS sys­tems, the fire­walls. So they’re break­ing the Internet in dif­fer­ent pieces.

Having got the mon­ey, the next chal­lenge was to some­how get the only tele­com provider at the time in the coun­try, Sri Lanka Telecom, to set up the net­work com­mu­ni­ca­tion chan­nels. So with a kind of per­sua­sion I was able to get three 64 kilo­bits per sec­ond wire­less links to con­nect my uni­ver­si­ty, University of Moratuwa, to two oth­er uni­ver­si­ties, one in Colombo, University of Colombo, and Open University. And in 1994 we set up the first IP ran in the country.

I’ve been increas­ing­ly inter­est­ed in this idea of media arts and crafts, and think­ing about…honestly what that means. And so I actu­al­ly self­ish­ly have a ques­tion for every­body. The ques­tion is, did you have a book when you were younger that was some­how like a DIY, or arts and crafts, or some sort of instruc­tion­al mak­ing guide for kids that had a last­ing impact on you?

In sci­ence fic­tion they have space­ships and long jour­ney type of stuff, and most of the time peo­ple seem to be by them­selves. So imag­ine hav­ing a lit­tle robot that you can just have on the ship with you and just talk to that, and it’d help you keep sane as you go through years and years of space travel.

All of my sculp­tures are uni­fied by that they’re almost…you know 99.9% just paper, with dif­fer­ent meth­ods of print­ing, and are all hand­made. And I think a lot about scale, and how the small­est thing can take up space.
