Earlier today, Wednesday April 2 2014, Vint Cerf was a Leo LaPorte’s guest on a TWiTtv Hangout. Video is below.
The Global Solution Networks program at the University of Toronto has released a two part research report The Remarkable Internet Governance Network, authored by former Internet Society President/CEO Lynn St. Amour, and GSN Executive Director Don Tapscott. The report is intended to assist governments and organizations to better understand the Internet governance network and how to help it succeed.
The recent IANA Globalization initiative is noted. From the press release:
[St. Amour and Tapscott] describe the multi-stakeholder model of Internet governance, why it works remarkably well and what needs to be done to ensure a robust, global, accessible and effectively governed Internet for future generations. [They] applaud the NTIA decision as a natural step forward and a significant confirmation that the multi-stakeholder model is effective and legitimate. They explain that evolving the global multi-stakeholder ecosystem is not only right and timely, but also the best way to address some of the thornier policy issues global society faces. These issues range from privacy, security and Net neutrality, to access and intellectual property.
Included in the report’s additional materials are transcripts of interviews with Tim Berners-Lee, Fadi Chehadé, Vint Cerf, Bertrand de La Chapelle, and Jonathan Zittrain. The report is free to download:

On Monday May 13 2013, Vint Cerf addressed the Washington DC Chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (DC ACM) on the topic ‘Reinventing the Internet‘. Dr. Cerf is the ACM’s current president and, in 2004, a winner of its prestigious Turing Award. The presentation focused on the evolution of the Internet from its beginning in 1973 to its current state and the need for updates to its architecture. It was webcast live by the Internet Society’s North America Bureau, video is below.
The Internet was designed 40 years ago and has been in operation for 30 years. It has evolved considerably but its architecture is still pretty much as it was in its 1973 incarnation. We have learned a great deal about the applications of the Internet in the intervening decades and it is clear that there is room for improvement and expansion in several dimensions. The Internet of Things is rapidly emerging; mobiles are everywhere; the interplanetary internet is in nascent operation between the Earth and Mars. Security has become a major issue as have authentication and integrity. These topics form the core of the presentation at DC ACM.
New Zealander Brian E. Carpenter is a former Chair of the Internet Society’s Board of Trustees (2000-2002). He led the networking group at CERN during the period that Tim Berners-Lee developed the World Wide Web. He is a leading figure in the history and work of the Internet Architecture Board (IAB) and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). In other words he’s one of those many fathers of the Internet, one who has worked diligently over the years to make it what is today. He has now authored a book describing that process – Network Geeks – How They Built the Internet (Springer, 2013).
From the blurb:
Part history, part memoir and part cultural study, Network Geeks charts the creation of the Internet and the establishment of the Internet Engineering Task Force, from the viewpoint of a self-proclaimed geek who witnessed these developments first-hand. With boundless enthusiasm and abundant humour, Brian Carpenter leads the reader on a journey from post-war Britain to post-millennium New Zealand, describing how the Internet grew into today’s ubiquitous, global network, including the genesis of the World-Wide Web in the hotbeds of a particle collider at CERN. Illuminating the science and technology behind the apparent “magic trick” of the Internet, Network Geeks opens a window into the initially bewildering world of the Internet engineering geek. After reading this book, you may wish to join this world yourself
And Vint Cerf himself says:
This is a geek page-turner! I learned much about the European side of the Internet’s history that I did not know in detail and a lot about Brian himself, too. I don’t know how he remembered so much in detail!
The book is available in paperback or kindle editions from AMAZON: http://www.amazon.com/Network-Geeks-They-Built-Internet/dp/1447150244/
On Thursday February 28, 2013 Vint Cerf spoke at the TED2013 conference in Long Beach CA. He was asked to respond to Danny Hillis’ earlier presentation, “The Internet could crash. We need a Plan B.” Vint, while confessing “Every time I get a webpage that comes up I’m sitting here thinking, ‘Holy Crap, it actually worked!”, expressed confidence in the Internet’s resilience, suggesting that – as much as a Plan B – we should be thinking about Plan C – something that might supersede the Internet entirely… Video below:
