TCP/IP is 40 years old


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
Charles Goldfarb – Markup Languages
Dan Lynch – Founder of Interop, worked on TCP at SRI with BBN
Nancy Shepherd – Mayor of the City of Palo Alto
John Shoch – PARC Universal Protocol, PUP an important predecessor to TCP
Marc Weber – Internet Historian, Computer History Museum
Sean Askay – Google Earth Outreach

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