Quite a few people, key to the development of the Internet went to UCI. The classic examples are Paul Mockapetris, the designer of the Domain Name Service (DNS) -- you can thank him for all the web names (e.g., .com like keirsey.com, edgeoforder.org, amazon.com) -- and Roy Fielding the implementer of the HTTP protocol (that's where "http://" comes from), but there are quite a few more less known people that contributed in "email" and other things.

Something I knew was going to happen long before others knew anything about computers. Of course, my kids and all young people have no idea what it was like "before computers were ubiquitous."

Jim Meehan, my final thesis advisor for my PhD. I haven't seen him for about 25 years, and lost track of him until that moment. He works for Google now. I am amused by watching the video, because a pile of people who I know, but they don't notice me (or I them) as they walk past me. Larry Rowe, Fred Tonge, Peter Freeman. I think the grey hairs for them and me, slowed us down in recognition. But we recognized and talked to each other later on, as there were others.

G, I personally have a fantasy of doing a triple flip off the top, rounding out with a swan dive straight into a pool of Rationals. ----> I'm just a little enthusiastic, myself.
