WHAT: Inventing the internet: How ARPAnet got started

WHO: Presented by Dr. Charles Herzfeld, author of A Life at Full Speed: A Journal of Struggle and Discovery

ABOUT THE TOPIC:Among computer science aficionados, Dr. Charles Herzfeld is affectionately known as the “Godfather of the Internet.” As Director of ARPA, the 1960s forerunner of DARPA (today’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), he was the force behind the development of the ARPANET, which ultimately became the Internet we know today. But what many do not know is the backstory behind this phenomenal achievement. The heady political, cultural and scientific milieu of that time was his element, and he emerged as a true high-tech legend. His numerous awards and honors include induction into the Internet Hall of Fame in 2012, with the title of “Pioneer.” Charles Herzfeld’s life story is an iconic American tale. Learn about the importance of the emerging world of computers and the decisions that lead to the creation of ARPANET. His just published book: A Life at Full Speed: A Journal of Struggle and Discovery will be available.
