Celebrating the 35th Anniversary of the Internet



Dr. Leonard Kleinrock - Professor of Computer Science at the University of California Los Angeles

Charles Hoffman, President and CEO, Covad Communications

Charles H. Giancarlo, VP & CTO, Cisco Systems

Geoff Ralston, Chief Product Officer, Yahoo! Inc.

Moderator:  Steve Yoder, Wall Street Journal, West Coast Bureau Chief

On October 29, 1969, Professor Leonard Kleinrock discovered the underlying principles of today's World Wide Web when his UCLA lab became the first node on the Internet. Since this historic connection 35 years ago, nearly half of all Americans have logged on to the Internet and over 20% have high-speed broadband access today. Our panelists will discuss the history of the Internet, including the vision behind its initial design; the growth of corporate networks and the role of the network in today's business environment; the current trend towards convergence of voice and data; and how the Internet has changed consumer behavior. Initial remarks by each panelist will be followed by a lively discussion around their perspectives on the future of the Internet.
