2019 Internet Hall of Fame Inductee Interviews: Jean Armour Polly

presented by Jean Armour Polly

Probably the thing that I’m most known for would be help­ing to evan­ge­lize the use of the Internet in pub­lic libraries. In the United States now, if you walk into a library you’ll see pub­lic com­put­ers set out and peo­ple can get free time on them. But it was­n’t always like that.

Be bold. Explore things. Be will­ing to chal­lenge the sta­tus quo. Not nec­es­sar­i­ly like throw every­thing out. Not the baby with the bath­wa­ter, as we say. But don’t be afraid to exper­i­ment. You know, just because it’s always been done one way does­n’t mean that there might not be anoth­er way to approach the prob­lem. And don’t think things can’t be done.

2019 Internet Hall of Fame Inductee Interviews: Douglas Comer

The hard part was that every­thing was new at the same time. There was new hard­ware. There were new pro­to­cols. There was a new imple­men­ta­tion of pro­to­cols in the oper­at­ing sys­tem. It was actu­al­ly dif­fi­cult to fig­ure out how to build pro­to­col soft­ware in the oper­at­ing sys­tems. We had new appli­ca­tions. Things that…you have to under­stand at the time peo­ple did­n’t use net­works. So every­thing was being done at the same time.

Sustainably Feeding a Planet of 11 Billion

The most extra­or­di­nary thing that’s hap­pened in my adult intel­lec­tu­al lifes­pan is a demo­graph­ic tran­si­tion. The fact that human pop­u­la­tion fer­til­i­ty will reduce itself nat­u­ral­ly in a non-coercive way if we get things right.

José Soriano’s Internet Hall of Fame 2019 Induction Speech

presented by José Soriano

It’s a great hon­or to be induct­ed in the Internet Hall of Fame. I don’t do it in my name alone. I do it for all the Peruvians who work in this net­work we built in the 90s. We learned very well the teach­ings of Randy Bush. Sometimes when he taught us tech­nol­o­gy with love, and we saw poet­ic, hip­pie, unre­pen­tant words. And we cre­at­ed with that a vision.

RNP was launched in September 1989, exact­ly thir­ty years ago this month. So we’re now at the stage of look­ing back and see­ing how we are at present.

Part of my net­work­ing expe­ri­ence as I grew as a net­work­ing per­son, and Internet per­son, peo­ple would come up and say, Well what was it like to be a woman in a men’s field?” And I’ve got­ta com­pli­ment the Merit folks who hired the NSFNET staff. They were gender-blind.

Kimberly Claffy’s Internet Hall of Fame 2019 Induction Speech

presented by Kimberly Claffy

So many pre­vi­ous awardees have spo­ken of the mag­ic sauce of the Internet. The oppo­site of secret sauce, I guess, because they all use the word open.” Open stan­dards, open archi­tec­ture, open source. They said this open­ness is what made the Internet the Internet. Which sounds most­ly right, although not much like how we expe­ri­ence the Internet today.

Larry Irving’s Internet Hall of Fame 2019 Induction Speech

presented by Larry Irving

In 1993 when we first start­ed talk­ing about the dig­i­tal divide and doing the work to define the dig­i­tal divide, there were 15 mil­lion peo­ple on this plan­et on the Internet. Today there are 4 bil­lion. A lot of peo­ple in this room did a lot of work to make that hap­pen. But we have a lot that we need to do still.

Austerity as a Service
Human-Centered Design for Climate Mitigation and Resilience

presented by Scott Sullivan

As a human-centered design­er what is my role, what is our role, in this kind of big­ger pic­ture? If this is the dom­i­nant lens of soci­ety, what’s our con­tri­bu­tion?
