WEBCAST TODAY: ARPANET: Celebrating 50 Years Since “LO” #AAASMTG @vgcerf #50yearsofARPANET

livestreamThe 2019 American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Annual Meeting was held in Washington, DC earlier in February with the theme Science Transcending Boundaries‘. Attendees celebrated three scientific milestones: 1) 150 years ago Dmitri Mendeleev presented the Periodic Table to the Russian Chemical Society; 2) 50 years ago the first moon walk by Neil Armstrong, made possible by Apollo 11’s successful landing on the moon; and 3) the first ARPANET message was sent from the University of California, Los Angeles to the Stanford Research Institute. This early network became the basis for today’s Internet. In the case of the latter two, not only was a large cake cut and distributed, but also a panel convened of original ARPANET researchers/engineers Vint Cerf, Stephen D. Crocker, Robert E. Kahn, Leonard Kleinrock and David Walden. Today, Wednesday 27 February 2019 at 2pm ET (19:00 UTC) the Internet Society Livestream Channel will restream that panel.
