My latest column, published over at aNewDomain, is a short 12-question interview with Internet pioneer, TCP/IP co-inventor and Google vice president Vint Cerf.

I haven’t spoken to him in ages. It was nice to reconnect. In the interview, he talked briefly about his hopes, fears and goals for the Internet, and also discussed some serious issues regarding piracy, educational issues and more.

Find the interview here. 

The seminal 1974 paper setting out early Internet communications standards, by Cerf and TCP/IP co-inventor Robert Kahn, is readable in full below. Enjoy.
