Here’s the show you’ve been waiting for folks!

What can I say about Vint Cerf? One of the founding fathers of the Internet. Winner of the Turing Award. VP and Chief Internet Evangelist of Google, Inc. Chairman of ICANN. Trekkie. He’s in Facebook.

By the way, is it just me or does his cover photo here bear a strange resemblance to mine?

Vint Cerf

Cameron Reilly

Rumour has it he was also the inspiration for the character of “The Architect” in The Matrix. Check out this image.

Here’s a couple of questions that I asked him:

    What does the Chief Internet Evangelist at Google do?
    Which job has been more fun – Google or being “special technical adviser” on Gene Roddenberry’s Earth: Final Conflict?

    What was Al Gore’s actual role in inventing the Internet?

    Back in 1973, when Vint and Bob Kahn developed TCP/IP, did they have any idea how big it would become?
    Is the Interplanetary Internet (which Vint has been working on with JPL) for more than making sure astronauts have good access to porn on a trip to Mars?

    When are we going to see IPv6 rolled out more widely?

    Where are we currently at with Network Neutrality?
    What is the role of ICANN and who should get involved?

    If he could go back in time, what advice would he give to Vint Cerf in 1973?

It was obviously a great pleasure and honour to have Mr Cerf of the show and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did. And I have to sincerely thank Stan Relihan and Carla, Vint’s Chief of Staff, for helping set it up. This morning was certainly a highlight of my podcasting career.
