Michael Roberts’ Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech

My love affair with com­put­ing, which became after awhile a love affair with net­work­ing, began in the mid­dle 60s when I was a grad­u­ate stu­dent in busi­ness at Stanford. And some­one said, You know, there’s some­thing going on on the west side of cam­pus hav­ing to do with com­put­ers.”

Paul Vixie’s Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech

I spent the first half, let’s say fif­teen years of a career, try­ing to make com­mu­ni­ca­tions eas­i­er. And I thought that was a cool thing; I thought that would be great. I’ve spent rough­ly the sec­ond half, anoth­er fif­teen years, try­ing to make com­mu­ni­ca­tion hard­er, or at least more selec­tive and safer

Mahabir Pun’s Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech

I did not invent an impor­tant thing. I am not an inno­va­tor. The only thing I did is you know, in ear­ly 2000, when WiFi was just com­ing I used a sim­ple indoor router to make a long‐range wire­less link, a forty‐kilometer link, to bring Internet in my home vil­lage.

Karlheinz Brandenburg’s Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech

Thanks goes to every­body who helped to spread the tech­nol­o­gy. Okay, no. There’s one guy I won’t thank, and that’s the one who used a stolen cred­it card num­ber to buy our soft­ware and then spread it claim­ing it’s free. He did help us, but still I don’t thank him.

John Cioffi’s Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech

In view­ing the list of pre­vi­ous and cur­rent inductees, one is awestruck just to be includ­ed among them. My own con­tri­bu­tions in broad­band access, par­tic­u­lar­ly DSL, seem some­what dwarfed by those of the oth­ers.

Hualin Qian’s Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech

I want to express my thanks to the Internet pio­neers who invent­ed the Internet. This is not only ben­e­fi­cial to the peo­ple around the world, espe­cial­ly in China. There are more than six hun­dred mil­lion peo­ple using the Internet every day.

Frank Heart’s Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech

[Frank Heart] said that the thing he most remem­bers about build­ing the ear­ly ARPANET was it was real­ly an amaz­ing effort by a few peo­ple. It shows what can hap­pen when you put togeth­er a very tal­ent­ed group of focused peo­ple, and they can real­ly accom­plish an amaz­ing amount of things.

Erik Huizer’s Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech

I ran into Vint Cerf, who didn’t know me of course, but I knew him. So I bold­ly intro­duced myself, and Vint said, Hey, you wan­na come to din­ner?” And I said, Well yes, please.” So he shoved me into a cab…

Eric Allman’s Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech

When I start­ed, of course, there was no capital‐I Internet. There were, how­ev­er, even­tu­al­ly a bunch of small­er net­works that didn’t talk to each oth­er, and I decid­ed that they need­ed to talk to each oth­er at least for email.

Douglas van Houweling’s Internet Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Speech

One of the things that we have dis­cov­ered over and over again, as we build net­works that move elec­trons around and pho­tons around, is that human beings use those to con­nect with one anoth­er. We think we’re con­nect­ing com­put­ers togeth­er, it turns out we’re con­nect­ing human beings togeth­er.
