What is the Internet Hall of Fame?®
The Internet Hall of Fame® (www.internethalloffame.org) is a recognition program and virtual museum that celebrates the living history of the Internet and the individuals whose extraordinary contributions have made the Internet, its worldwide availability and use, and its transformative nature possible. The Internet Hall of Fame was launched by the Internet Society in 2012. Inaugural inductees were announced on April 23, 2012 at the Internet Society’s Global INET conference in Geneva, Switzerland.
The Internet's evolution is a story of many, many contributions. Each of the individuals in the Internet Hall of Fame made an important contribution to that history. The Internet Society wants to be sure to tell and to preserve those stories.
– Andrew Sullivan, Internet Society CEO
