InterCommunity: On The Internet For The Internet
Celebrating 25 years Internet, Hall of Fame Ceremony from LA, US
25 000 people, 56 chapters on five continents are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of The Internet, said Kathy Brown, CEO, and President of The Internet Society.
The celebration started with the launch of the Global Internet Report with a discussion panel streamed live online and conversations going around the 56 chapters across the globe for 24 hours.
The center in Brussels is keeping the communication channels open and there is a group of visual translators who are going to report about the celebration. On a special roundtable back in LA The Internet Society will make a summary from all what has been going on during the Celebration of The Internet.
I’ve downloaded the Global report to check the advantages and concerns users share for the preceding 12 months of research internationally.

It was 3 am in my time zone when the Hall of Frame broadcast started.
The Historic Celebration took place in Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, known to have been the place to send the first message to the appnet, before the internet existed.
Many of the current issues of The Internet have been addressed during the events, to mention the speed and price of bandwidth, digital skills, digital divide, online support and new occupations. Check the stream on Twitter with #ShapeTomorrow hashtag.
This event gathered great thinkers and achievers and it’s amazing that thanks to Internet Society organizers we can attend online either watch the replay. From engineers to connectors, each awarded Speaker is a legend and extraordinary example for us to follow!
