Vint Cerf at the Google Internet Summit

In early May Google hosted the Google Internet Summit 2009 at its Mountain View, Calif. campus. The event brought together thought leaders in Internet infrastructure, with the goal of gathering “a wide range of knowledge to inform Google’s future plans.” This video presents the introductory remarks from Vint Cerf, Google’s chief Internet evangelist and the co-designer of the TCP/IP network protocol. ”The Internet is at an important flex point in its history,” Cerf says. ”Scaling, in many different ways, is still an important issue. Cloud computing is adding another dimension to the way the Internet is being used.” This video runs 9 minutes, but the substance of Cerf’s remarks commece at the 4 minute mark after some opening greetings and housekeeping.
