    IETF people are invited to attend. Washington DC area.

    Appreciation Evening for Vint Cerf & Bob Kahn

    Date: Tuesday, May 10, 2005, 7 - 9:30 p.m.
    Where: Booz-Allen-Hamilton World Headquarters, McLean, Virginia
    Host: DCISOC - Washington DC Chapter of the Internet Society

    Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf, members of our local Washington DC
    Chapter of the Internet Society, have recently won the
    Association for Computing Machinery's prestigious annual Turing

    The ACM is the premier organization for computing professionals,
    and its Turing Award, considered the "Nobel Prize of Computing,"
    has been given to Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn for their for
    pioneering work on the design and implementation of the
    Internet's basic communications protocols. Cerf and Kahn jointly
    developed TCP/IP.

    The Turing Award will be presented at the ACM Awards Banquet in
    San Francisco, in June.

    Since we all can't get to the ACM meeting in San Francisco, ISOC
    chapters around the world have organized this meeting to express
    our gratitude for everything Bob and Vint have done, not just
    for the industry but for ISOC and the IETF as well.

    The evening will start with a social hour, with time to say
    hello to Vint and Bob. Several speakers (including Dennis
    Doughty, President, Booz-Allen-Hamilton Worldwide Technology
    Business) will touch briefly on the differences the Internet has
    brought to the world. Internet pioneer Steve Crocker will ask
    Bob and Vint to share their thoughts, looking back on three
    decades of remarkable change and to the future.

    We will have replica copies of historical TCP/IP documents
    which Vint and Bob may be so kind as to autograph for us.

    During the evening, leaders of ISOC chapters around the world
    will be joining the meeting via the Internet to congratulate
    Vint and Bob, and thank them for their key roles in the start
    and growth of the Internet, as well as in creating and
    supporting ISOC and the IETF.

    To attend, please R.S.V.P. to info at dcisoc.org. We need to give
    Booz Allen a count of the expected number of attendees, as they
    will be providing refreshments.

    Place: Booz-Allen-Hamilton Conference Center Tel. 703-902-5000

    "looking back on three decades of remarkable change"

    Cerf and Kahn have not changed in three decades.

    The rest of the world has, and is routing around them.

    Vinton Cerf is an ex-U.S. Government Funding Manager (a Purchasing Agent)

    He funded his academic techie cronies and they of
    course are now lead thugs in his various labor unions.

    The pattern is very clear, fund anyone with their
    paw out and who is willing to lie and cheat and
    game the system for the good of "the community".
    As long as the money is flowing, they have their
    paw in Uncle Vint's cookie-jar-du-jour.

    Take away the money and ICANN folds.
