Shigeki Goto’s Internet Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Speech

I learned a les­son. It’s accept­able to give up one dream. Still, there should be some­thing for us to con­tribute to human soci­ety. In my life, that was the Internet.

Tadao Takahashi’s Internet Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Speech

Looking at Brazil again thir­ty years lat­er, we see the very same sit­u­a­tion. And the ques­tion is what to do. The whole coun­try has been wait­ing to see when and how recov­ery will begin, polit­i­cal, eco­nom­ic and so on.

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.

Mike Jensen’s Internet Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Speech

I am deeply hon­ored to be part of this year’s inductees into the Internet Hall of Fame and the twenty‐fifth anniver­sary of the Internet Society, an orga­ni­za­tion that has done so much to fur­ther the goals of an open and broadly‐available Internet. I think we have a long way to go still.

Jianping Wu’s Internet Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Speech

I would like to thank the nom­i­nees and the selec­tion com­mit­tee for their nom­i­na­tion and the selec­tion. I believe that they do not present this hon­or to me but also to all of the Chinese Internet sci­en­tists and engi­neers, the CERNET team, and Tsinghua University.

Ira Fuchs’ Internet Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Speech

People have asked me, Why did you cre­ate BITNET?” Well, the truth­ful answer is I was envi­ous of ARPANET users. They had access to the most excit­ing tech­nol­o­gy at the time. But ARPANET, as you know, was only avail­able to a rel­a­tive­ly small group of devel­op­ers and researchers. And we didn’t know if it would ever be made avail­able to oth­ers.

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.

Ermanno Pietrosemoli’s Internet Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Speech

My grat­i­tude to the International Center for Theoretical Physics, which in 1990 held the first net­work­ing school that was the inspi­ra­tion for the cre­ation of EsLaRed, and for the con­tin­u­ing sup­port offered ever since to out insti­tu­tion.

Jaap Akkerhuis’ Internet Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Speech

It’s kind of excit­ing to be here. And being the first, but that’s what you get when your name starts with an A, I guess.

Tracy LaQuey Parker’s Internet Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Speech

I often think back to my life before I start­ed using the Internet. Well basi­cal­ly I had a life. But once I sat down at a Sun work­sta­tion at the University of Texas in 1988, I was com­plete­ly hooked. And I’ve been addict­ed ever since.
