Speaker Series - Steve Crocker, Inventor Of The Internet
Sunday, March 24, 2019, 3:30 PM until 5:30 PM
Battery Park Community Clubhouse
7908 Glenbrook Rd
BMAV is delighted to invite BMAV members and friends to join us for a talk with member Steve Crocker about his work as one of the inventors of the Internet.
As a student at UCLA, Crocker worked with other graduate students to put together the "Arpanet," the first piece of the Internet, and a trigger for the network era as we know it. Crocker's career has been spent in internet development and security, and was a Chair of the Board at ICANN, the non-profit that oversees the domain name system. Crocker will discuss the origins of networking and historical milestones and will explain this complex topic in a very relatable way. Learn more at the Internet Hall of Fame.
Join us for socializing and refreshments at 3:30 pm to be followed by the program at 4.
