Hi. I’m Paul Mockapetris, inven­tor of the DNS and Chief Scientist at Nominum. I’d like to express my grat­i­tude for join­ing the Internet Hall of Fame, and the illus­tri­ous crew that com­pos­es the Hall of Fame. I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing many future edi­tions.

One of the things I’d like to see is peo­ple have been build­ing new capa­bil­i­ties on top of the DNS for many years now. And I’m hop­ing to see in the future that we see three or four more peo­ple that have built advanced secu­ri­ty or oth­er fea­tures on top of this infra­struc­ture. That’d be my dream. But in any case, remem­ber: the future of the Internet is ahead of it. Thanks.
