    LivestreamOn Saturday April 22 2017 the National Science Foundation and Mozilla will host a launch event for the Wireless Innovation for a Networked Society Challenges at eBay’s office in NYC. These competitions, which have $2m in prizes, challenge the public to identify and demonstrate solutions to further wireless networks in two scenarios. (1) The Off-the-Grid Internet Challenge aims to find wireless solutions for communication that can be rapidly deployed in post-disaster situations where Internet access is unavailable or compromised. (2) The Smart Community Networks Challenge aims to find wireless solutions for communication that can be built on top of existing infrastructure to enhance Internet connectivity in communities that need greater access. Each challenge will consist of two stages: a Design Concept Stage and a Working Prototype Stage. If you wish to attend in person RSVP here. The event will be webcast live on the Internet Society Livestream Channel.

    WEBCAST TODAY: The Internet Age – Founders to Future @amhistorymuseum @internetsociety #internetage 

    Internet AgeToday Thursday June 11 2015 at 2:30pm EDT the Internet Society and the National Museum of American History present The Internet Age – Founders to Future in Washington DC. This Global Innovation Summit will examine the people and events that led to the creation of the Internet. Prominent contributors to the rich history of the Internet will conduct a conversation about the diverse elements that contributed to the creation of innovations and inventions that led to the Internet Age. The Internet is among the most powerful and influential “inventions” ever created. But where did it come from? Who were the people who first imagined it, and what are the inventive technologies that enable the Internet to exist? The evolution of the Internet continues as new innovations propel this global network of networks into seemingly impossible realities. Please join the National Museum of American History, the Internet Society, Internet pioneers, and digital natives for a lively conversation about the continuum of the Internet, from how it was imagined to where the Internet is taking us in the future. PANEL: Vint Cerf, widely known as one of the “Fathers of the Internet,” is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols and the architecture of the Internet. He has served as vice president and chief Internet evangelist for Google since October 2005. Mr. Cerf was inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame in 2012. Mitchell Baker is Executive Chairwoman of the Mozilla Foundation and the leader of the Mozilla Project. She is responsible for organizing and motivating a massive, worldwide, collective of employees and volunteers who are breathing new life into the Internet with the Firefox Web browser and other products. Ms. Baker was inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame in 2012. David Farber played a key role in many systems that converged into today’s Internet. He is an Internet Hall of Fame inductee and the Alfred Fitler Moore Professor Emeritus at the University of Pennsylvania and Adjunct Professor at Carnegie Mellon University. Sebastian Thrun is a scientist, educator, researcher, inventor, and entrepreneur. Today, he is the founder and CEO of Udacity, a company dedicated to democratizing learning for everyone. Udacity has almost 4 million students in over 190 countries. The event will be webcast on the Smithsonian Ustream channel, relayed on the Internet Society Livestream Channel. An edited version will be repackaged for educational use by the museum’s Education Outreach team and ISOC.

      I worked with Dr. David Farber-“Grandfather of the Internet” when he was on the faculty of the University of Delaware and I was the IBM Corp. Account Manager from 1981 to 1987. It was
      the highlight of my 35 year career with “Big Blue” when it was “top of the charts”. JOE MELLOY

    @Mozilla becomes @InternetSociety silver member 

    MozillaMozilla  engineering manager Josh Aas has announced on his blog that the organisation is joining the Internet Society (ISOC) as a Silver member. Aas points out that Mozilla has already been involved in several Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) working groups and that supporting ISOC is a logical next step. ISOC provides organisational and administrative backing to the IETF and other entities that are involved in the stewardship of the global network. It has 55,000 members in 90 chapters around the world and over 130 organisation members.

    The membership fee for the Silver tier is $12,500 annually for non-profit organisations and $25,000 annually for corporations. Mozilla is joining at the same level as companies such as Google, Verizon, AT&T and Huawei. Platinum contributors include Microsoft, Comcast, Verisign and Cisco. In his blog post, Aas says that Mozilla believes that “supporting ISOC and, by extension, the IETF, is a solid investment in terms of our mission to promote openness, innovation and opportunity on the Web.”

    Mozilla has, in the past, been influential in the development and furthering of internet standards such as TLS, HTTP, WebSockets and more.
