Bringing a New Generation into the Digital Future

June 14, 2017

In this exclusive video from the Internet Hall of Fame archives, 2014 IHOF inductee Susan Estrada describes the 1988 creation of CERFnet, one of the original regional IP networks, and talks about how she and her team built an Internet network that everyone could use. CERFnet logged a number of notable ‘firsts’ for the Internet, including the first commercial network.

Dr. Estrada discusses the challenges of getting people to use the Internet at the time, and shares how a female superhero named ‘Captain Internet’ brought a whole new generation into the digital future through the formation of interconnectivity.
