Congratulations to all of the Internet Hall of Fame Inductees! John Curran  –  Apr 24, 2012 6:20 AM PST

The Internet Society should also be commended for its inauguration of this important program to formally recognize those whose contributions have made the Internet a success.  As time moves on and the Internet becomes increasingly part of the everyday life, it's essential that we make time to record (and celebrate!) the contributions of these Internet pioneers.

Congratulations to all of the Internet Hall of Fame Inductees!
