In honor of the critical technology that underpins everything, not least of which is this little blog, there’s a TCP/IP party on Saturday.
Tickets are $25 and can be obtained here.
There is a great list of speakers:
Vint Cerf – with Bob Kahn, wrote the TCP spec, published in the IEEE Journal May 1974
Yogen Dalal – co-authored the first TCP Specification (RFC 675, INWG 72)
Judy Estrin – worked on the initial TCP project at Stanford

Nancy Shepherd – Mayor of the City of Palo Alto
John Shoch – PARC Universal Protocol, PUP an important predecessor to TCP

The team will be launching the “Conceiving the Internet” that is collecting stories about how the Internet began.
