Vint Cerf Lecture

Vint Cerf gave a lecture on the past, present, and future of the Internet last night at the Dr. Ambedkar Bhavana Memorial Trust. The invitation-only event was sponsored by Google as the kickoff for an ongoing technical speakers series. One of the highlights of the evening was his discussion of the design of network protocols to support an “InterPlanNet” or IPN as a sort of “deep space” backbone for transmission of data from spacecraft and planetary probes.

    On a lighter note, perhaps our need-of-hour would get resolved via this IPN not for interplanetory but interplanetory…While taking long flights between US and India…
