Google Speaker Series

As part of the Google Speaker Series’s inaugural talk, Vinton cerf visited Hyderabad today(on Feb 23 2007). Along with him came the Google India head who said there would more talks, one in each quarter of the year.

Coming to the Vinton’s talk it was pretty good, considering the opinion with which i went to hear it(with no offence to Vinton). I have read a blog regarding his talk in Bangalore and it said it was highly technical, so i went to the talk expecting Greek and Latin and was pleasantly  surprised to hear plain English.

He talked about the requirements which he and his colleagues had to meet while  designing the IP  which are design independent of both the application as well as the infrastructure.  He also talked about the VPN, QoS, future of the Internet.

One of the on going project he talked about is the interplanetary networks which are being in use by the Nasa to communicate with the rover on the Mars.

Overall it was a great talk by the father of the Internet and i eagerly look forward for rest of the google speaker series
