Vint Cerf @ PTC 2009

Vint Cerf, one of the true architects of the Internet during the DARPA years, spoke at the Pacific Telecommunications Conference (PTC) 2009. It's always inspiring to hear people like Vint speak as they are influential in the development of the Internet. With trusty Xacti in hand, I was able to capture his keynote on Jan. 19, 2009. The entire talk was about an hour long so I clipped a couple of passages that you might find interesting. The first is his thoughts on the state of the Internet and some of the new developments in 2009. In this segment he talks about IPv6, new TLD names, copyrights and cloud computing. The second clip is about a future view on extending the Internet beyond the Earth and into inter-planetary space. Here he talks about the protocol development to enable space vehicles and satellites to communicate with each other. His entire keynote was quite engaging and I hope make more of it available later.
