This should be fun. Open to all. Stop by if you can.
Plenty of room at the Booz-Allen conference center,
so pass on to others who may be interested.
No charge, refreshments. -Gene Gaines

Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf have recently won the Association for
Computing Machinery's prestigious annual Turing Award.
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 protocol on which the Internet is based.
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 as well.
Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn will join us for the evening. The event
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
Internet pioneer Steve Crocker then will ask Bob and Vint to
share their thoughts, looking back on three decades of
remarkable change and to the future. We will have available
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 us remotely to congratulate Vint and Bob, and
thank the two for their key roles in the start and growth of the
Internet, as well as in creating and supporting both ISOC and
