IETF Turns 30

Today marks the 30th anniversary of a meeting that became the first version of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) meetings now held three times per year. On 16-17 January 1986 in San Diego, California, 21 people attended the historic meeting what is now known as IETF 1. In a blog post commemorating the anniversary, Jari Arkko, IETF Chair writes: "Looking ahead from today, it seems impossible to forecast with any certainty what the Internet will look like 30 years into the future. Yet, in the nearer term, we know that billions more people will be connected around the world over the next few years, and that the Internet will also provide connectivity to objects in our environment as information technology is used to enhance those objects."
