2013 Internet Hall of Fame Interviews: Jun Murai

In order to make the Internet be a kind of glob­al enti­ty, I’ve been involved as one of the key per­sons out­side the US for the devel­op­ment of the Internet.

2013 Internet Hall of Fame Interviews: John Perry Barlow

My great­est hope, and the thing I’ve been work­ing for most of my life now, is that it will real­ize itself as being some­thing that makes it pos­si­ble for any­body to know any­thing that they’re capa­ble of know­ing. Which I think is a won­der­ful thought. Or that it will make it pos­si­ble for any­body that has some­thing impor­tant that oth­er peo­ple should hear to say it, with­out any fear of being shut up or coerced or that sort of thing.

There was real­ly no real secu­ri­ty built, oth­er than things like pass­words and maybe some encryp­tion here or there. And the atti­tude that my boss had at National Science Foundation was, That’s not our con­cern. This is for the aca­d­e­mics. People want to build in all kinds of secu­ri­ty, that’s some­body else’s prob­lem.” I think that was a very valid point at that time, but that was 1990.

We tried to con­nect to the ARPANET. And that was the Ministry of Defense, and at that time­frame we were in let’s say a cold war” with Russia. And we were not allowed to attest to that. So we silent­ly set up from phone lines SLIP pro­to­col, TCP over ser­i­al lines. And start­ed to do Internet.

The Internet by itself is not valu­able for any­body. The Internet is valu­able if it impacts in the life of the peo­ple. So this is what we have to work on every day.

2013 Internet Hall of Fame Interviews: Kanchana Kanchanasut

I think my role for the Internet was that I was lucky to be part of the peo­ple who spread the Internet through Southeast Asia. I brought the Internet to Thailand.

2013 Internet Hall of Fame Interviews: Ram Mohan

Keeping cohe­sion at the core of the Internet is an impor­tant thing. I’m not wor­ried that that’s going to go away. But you have to con­tin­u­al­ly pay atten­tion to it. Because that func­tion of con­verg­ing, at the core is a crit­i­cal one. When you do that well, what it allows is at the edges of the Internet it allows for things to hap­pen. For inno­va­tion, for ideas to happen.

It’s obvi­ous that the Internet is a tremen­dous suc­cess, and the world is not pre­pared to live with­out it any­more. At the same time, it has nev­er been designed to pro­vide the ser­vices it is assumed to do today.

2013 Internet Hall of Fame Interviews: Henning Schulzrinne

We’ve designed sys­tems not real­ly well antic­i­pat­ing the kind of users that would real­ly use them, think­ing that they would—or maybe not even thinking—that they would be used in the same way that they were in the 1980s and 1990s. 

2013 Internet Hall of Fame Interviews: James Galvin

The great­est threat to the secu­ri­ty and sta­bil­i­ty of our Internet today is dis­trib­uted attacks, dis­trib­uted denial of ser­vice attacks in par­tic­u­lar. The Internet was built on a foun­da­tion of it works because every­body coop­er­ates and we all agree. And that was a great envi­ron­ment when you pret­ty much could name every­body who was on the Internet, or you got to where you could name all the sites and you know, you could name all the organizations.
