Tan Tin Wee’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

I feel so unde­serv­ing, and as they say, them more you reward the unde­serv­ing the hard­er they will work in the future. So I have a lot of work cut out for me going ahead in the future.

Vint Cerf’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

You know, I got to think­ing about—Tan Tin Wee beat me to this anal­o­gy but I’m going to use it any­way. If the ARPANET cre­at­ed atoms, then the Internet cre­at­ed mol­e­cules. And Tim Berners-Lee cre­at­ed DNA. And after that, it was just life in all its vari­a­tions. So now I final­ly fig­ured out what is it that …read the full tran­script.

John Klensin’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

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.

Elizabeth Feinler’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

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.

About 1988, I was run­ning a region­al devel­op­ment infor­ma­tion sys­tem at the United Nations eco­nom­ic com­mis­sion for Africa in Addis Ababa.

Unfortunately the satel­lites weren’t there.

Randy Bush’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

Daniel Karrenberg’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

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.

Craig Newmark’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

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.

Brewster Kahle’s Internet Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Speech

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?
