Brewster Kahle’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

presented by Brewster Kahle

Back in 1980, work­ing with the arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence guys, we had this idea we were going to make smart machines. But it need­ed to read good books, don’t you think?

Craig Newmark’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

presented by Craig Newmark

The peo­ple who real­ly get the cred­it are the peo­ple who built the Internet, includ­ing a lot of peo­ple we nev­er hear about. The cred­it also goes to peo­ple who help each oth­er out every day, some­times in large num­bers, who nev­er get any recog­ni­tion at all.

In 1992…I had a plan. And that plan was to set up the first region­al Internet reg­istry, and in April 1993 to be done with the Internet and move on to the next inter­est­ing thing.

Elizabeth Feinler’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

presented by Elizabeth Feinler

When I first start­ed on the Internet in 1972, I joined Doug Engelbart’s group, Augmentation Research Center, and I didn’t know exact­ly what a net­work infor­ma­tion cen­ter was but I thought we were going to be han­dling infor­ma­tion in a very dif­fer­ent way, and it was very addictive.

I’m Elizabeth Feinler, usu­al­ly known as Jake.” That’s my nick­name. And I ran the con­tract for the Network Information Center on both the ARPANET and the Defense Data Network back in the 70s and 80s.

John Klensin’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

presented by John Klensin

When many of the peo­ple in this room were begin­ning to lay the ground­work for the net­work in the 60s, I was work­ing as a polit­i­cal sci­en­tist and wor­ry­ing about com­mu­ni­ca­tions pat­terns and how those worked.

Jon Postel’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech (Posthumous)

presented by Jon Postel

For a long time I think we real­ly thought of him as sort of the Gandalf in the fam­i­ly. We had real­ly very lit­tle idea what he actu­al­ly did, but he was radi­at­ing kind of a qui­et, will­ful integri­ty which I think real­ly was the foun­da­tion of much of what hap­pened in his kind of shep­herd­ing of many of these processes.

When you move out of this room, you can­not use the Internet any­more. Then what would you do? Today, we have two bil­lion peo­ple, includ­ing us, who can access the Internet. Then there is just sim­ple math. There’s five bil­lion peo­ple who don’t have access to the Internet. That’s my concern.

Lawrence Landweber’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

presented by Lawrence Landweber

My involve­ment with net­works start­ed in the late 70s. In fact, 1977 I was hap­pi­ly prov­ing the­o­rems in com­pu­ta­tion­al com­plex­i­ty, Petri nets, and at that point I’d learned about email and I learned about the ARPANET and real­ized for the first time that there was a real-world part of com­put­er sci­ence, and not just prov­ing theorems.

Lawrence Roberts’ Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

presented by Lawrence Roberts

The way it all start­ed was in 1964 I was at a con­fer­ence in the home­stead in Virginia. And Lick and I were sit­ting around talk­ing with Corbató, who was run­ning the time-sharing sys­tem at MIT. And Lick was talk­ing about what do we need next? And I was very inter­est­ed in that. And so he was say­ing, Well, we need a net­work to tie the machines togeth­er. We need some way to have them communicate.”
