Internet hall of fame announced by Internet Society
The Internet is a wonder that billions of people use each day and yet just over thirty years ago many had no idea what it even was, if only they knew how much it would affect the world when it was in its infancy.
For a long time a lot of the early developers of the Internet have been hid away from the public eye and not properly appreciated for the massive contributions they have had on society as we know it. Well the Internet Society believed it was about time those people were properly credited and have built an Internet hall of fame which on launch has officially recognized 33 people as having a large influence in bringing the Internet to what it is today. The hall of fame categorizes the honoured by three categories, pioneers, global connectors and innovators.
Internet Society CEO, Lynn St. Amour says "There are some extraordinary people who have helped make the Internet an unparalleled platform for innovation and communication, an engine for economic development and social progress that goes well beyond what we could have ever imagined. This program honors individuals who have pushed the boundaries to bring the Internet to life and made it an essential resource used by billions."
