Steve Crocker Explains the Internet to You

hwms.coverartIf you spend any time with senior engineers, you get stories.  Stories of Work. Stories of Technology.  Stories of Friendship.  Stories of accomplishment

Often, these stories are far more profound than the tellers intend.  They tell of mastery, of coming of age, of accomplishment, of agreement.

But they also post a serious question.  How do you re-tell these stories without offending all connected with it offending all connected with it, including the original teller.

The crack How We Manage Stuff is tackling this challenge with a story of dedication to technology that involves two Internet pioneers and a locked building on the campus of UCLA.  The first is an occasional series called “Steve Crocker Explains the Internet to You.”

 

Cast:

  • Evelyn the Business Manater – Margaux Amie
  • Rohit from IT – Noah Masur
  • Maddie, the young entrepreneur  – Zoe Anastassiou
  • Mix the Master Scrum Master – Ron Bianchi
  • Sully from Policy – Josh LaForce

Was the Internet designed to withstand a nuclear attack? Common story. Is it true?

Rohit and Penelope Othmar explore the origins of the Internet when they review the book Imagineers of War by Sharon Weinberger, a book that discusses the history of ARPA, the Advanced Research Projects Agency.    The answer is not as straightforward as we might like.

Featuring:
