This is an excellent article that presents the views of one of the fathers of
the Internet. Cerf is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocol, the communications
protocol that gave birth to the Internet. The musings presented here should be
used as a stimulus for further discussion in technical conferences, seminars,
and the like.
