On October 29, 1969, Professor Leonard Kleinrock supervised the transmission of the first message on the Internet from UCLA. Since this historic connection 35 years ago, nearly half of all Americans have logged on to the Internet and over 20 percent have high-speed broadband access today.
Join us and hear panelists 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.
