Open University – T171 Course Material

N.B. I did email Vint Cerf at http://www.worldcom.com to find out if he is comfortable with the title “father of the Internet”. Unfortunately, as of 01/09/2000, I have not received a reply.

Tutor’s note: Vint Cerf’s very generous reply arrived a few days after the assignment went into the Open University’s inflexible assessment system – but I had already given the student extra points for this initiative. Both of us were justified when Vint Cerf’s assessment turned out to be almost identical to the ‘conclusion’ of the assignment.
