Data & Society Databite #119: Mary L. Gray on Ghost Work

I’m just going to say it, I would like to com­plete­ly blow up employ­ment clas­si­fi­ca­tion as we know it. I do not think that defin­ing full-time work as the place where you get ben­e­fits, and part-time work as the place where you have to fight to get a full-time job, is an appro­pri­ate way of address­ing this labor mar­ket.

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.

Yvonne Marie Andrés’ Internet Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Speech

I had a life-changing moment in 1984 that final­ly got my stu­dents excit­ed about learn­ing. Apple launched a pro­gram called Kids Can’t Wait and gave every school in California a com­put­er. Unfortunately the com­put­er did not come with soft­ware.

2017 Internet Hall of Fame Inductee Interviews: Alan Emtage

Back in 1989 when I was a stu­dent at McGill University I devel­oped what became the first Internet search engine. So the pre­de­ces­sor to Google and Bing and all of those things.

Craig Partridge’s Internet Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Speech

If you talk with peo­ple wor­ried about the evo­lu­tion of tech­nol­o­gy one of the things they often com­ment about is that in many cas­es the future is quite clear. You can see it com­ing, but you don’t know how far away it is.

Ed Krol’s Internet Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Speech

When I first learned about being named for this award, I lis­tened to the accep­tance speech­es of pri­or awardees and I noticed the cen­tral theme was I just hap­pened to be in the right place at the right time.” And in fact I just hap­pened to be in the right place at the right time.

Susan Estrada’s Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech

One of our ear­li­est com­mer­cial cus­tomers was a small start­up named Qualcomm. And we made some bold choic­es like pur­chas­ing equip­ment from anoth­er small start­up named Cisco and pro­vid­ed them with a big boost. We were 10% of their gross rev­enue for 1988, and they did­n’t know how to ful­fill our order.

Masaki Hirabaru’s Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech (Posthumous)

I’m very hap­py that I could par­tic­i­pate in this cer­e­mo­ny today for my father. To be hon­est, I grew up with­out know­ing much of his work. But this time I could know that there are many peo­ple who high­ly regard­ed his work and loved his char­ac­ter.

Srinivasan Ramani’s Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech

I stand here as a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of num­ber of groups of col­leagues. The work that was described was a part of what I did as part of the Indian aca­d­e­m­ic net­work project called the Education & Research Network, ERNET, fund­ed by the gov­ern­ment of India and sup­port­ed by the United Nations Development Programme.

Rolf Nordhagen’s Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech (Posthumous)

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.
