Last night’s Berkeley CyberSalon panel was great fun — thanks to Eric Allman, Chad Dickerson, Lisa Dusseault and Jaron Lanier for sharing their thoughts, and to everyone else who showed up with their time, their questions and their trenchant comments. (I had not known that both Jaron and Lisa have very recently become parents, and if I had I might not have presumed to ask them on the panel, but I’m very glad I did, and grateful that they put aside their parental duties long enough to participate.)
One of many highlights for me was the moment when Eric hauled some old inch-thick booklets out of his briefcase — one contained the entire set of Internet (then Arpanet) protocols from the late ’70s, bound in a mere single volume; the other was a complete list of the network’s users. My, things have changed.
There’s a downloadable podcast/MP3 file of the whole event if you’re curious.
