“Internet Innovators” features Pioneer Steve Crocker
Our Web Series will Return with Another Incredible Internet Legend
Most young engineers go into this industry aspiring to solve a problem someday that could change the world. Internet pioneer Steve Crocker is known as “the man who invented the instructions for the Internet.”
But at one point he too was just a dreamer trying to solve a set of problems.
Crocker was a UCLA graduate student when the underpinnings of the Internet were being developed. So, what was it like to be in his twenties and part of something that would change the world forever?
See the promo - in this clip, NANOG producer Elizabeth Drolet asks Crocker about his role in what we now know as the Internet.
Watch the full episode, on Wednesday, Jan. 26, on NANOG TV.
