Nabil Bukhalid’s Internet Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Speech

Despite all odds, with a group of friends at the uni­ver­si­ty, we were look­ing into solu­tions to break the iso­la­tion of AUB from the aca­d­e­m­ic envi­ron­ment in the US. So we start­ed to look into con­nec­tiv­i­ty.

Florencio Utreras’ Internet Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Speech

During all this time, many of you have been involved in devel­op­ing the Internet and mak­ing it the tool of many phas­es. From aca­d­e­m­ic col­lab­o­ra­tion, to busi­ness and shop­ping. From social inter­ac­tion, to democ­ra­cy pro­mo­tion. In short, to all feats of human activ­i­ty. We have gone from the pro­mo­tion of con­nec­tiv­i­ty to a connectivity-dependent soci­ety, and many could feel that the job is done.
