Anne-Lise Nordhagen: First of all, thank you to the com­mit­tee for invit­ing me. On behalf of the whole fam­i­ly, I would like to thank the ISOC for hon­or­ing my late hus­band Rolf Nordhagen. Participating in the his­to­ry of the Internet, he would have been so proud to be rec­og­nized in this way. Being part of the com­mu­ni­ty that pio­neered the devel­op­ing and pro­lif­er­a­tion of the Internet was very much his life’s most sig­nif­i­cant project. Very ear­ly, he envi­sioned the great improve­ment it would have on the aca­d­e­m­ic exchange of knowl­edge, ideas, and dis­course. That it would ulti­mate­ly con­nect and empow­er peo­ple all over the globe for social, com­mer­cial, and polit­i­cal pur­pos­es was as aston­ish­ing to him as it prob­a­bly is to most of us. It’s quite in char­ac­ter that he, in the days before he passed away in the retire­ment home, post­ed a long mes­sage on Facebook where he demand­ed that the munic­i­pal­i­ty of Oslo devel­op a bet­ter sys­tem for log­ging on to the pub­lic WiFi sys­tem. In fact, I’m quite sure he has already been pes­ter­ing Saint Peter about get­ting Internet in the real cloud. He has not suc­ceed­ed yet, though, because then he would have been on a screen right here, thank­ing you all on Skype.
