Happy Birthday, Vint Cerf

Vint Cerf, one of the pioneers of the Internet, turns 71 today.

Cerf shares his birthday with Alan Turing, the British mathematician who cracked the German’s Enigma code. The ACM named its highest award for him, which Cerf received in 2004.

In their mutual honor, we recommend this essay on Turing that Cerf wrote on what would have been Turing’s 100th birthday.


What was that about “technophobic” seniors?

Cerf is currently the Chief Internet Evangelist for Google.
