Vinton Cerf in New Zealand
Vinton G. Cerf is senior vice president of Internet Architecture and Technology for WorldCom. Cerf, with Bob Kahn, is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocol (1973), the communications protocol that gave birth to the Internet and which is commonly used today. Cerf's work with the Internet started when he was a UCLA graduate student in 1967.

In December 1997, President Clinton presented the U.S. National Medal of Technology to Cerf and his partner, Robert E. Kahn, for founding and developing the Internet.

ICANN has a short biography of Mr Vinton Cerf and WorldComm hosts his personal webpage. In his page he keeps an "Internet History", his archives and explores new frontiers of the internet, including the proposed "Interplanetary Internet". Make sure you visit the Q&A section of "Internet History" there!

The link below is to a video interview where he explains how the idea of TCP and IP came to be, and how more than 600 million people use the internet these days. This interview was recorded last 18th Feb, during his recent visit to New Zealand. .
