[ih] WEBCAST TODAY: ARPANET: Celebrating 50 Years Since “LO”

2pm today. I have slightly reformatted the video, and will ad some captions.

[image: livestream] <https://livestream.com/internetsociety/arpanet50>The *2019
American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Annual Meeting
<https://www.aaas.org/resources/2019-aaas-annual-meeting>* was held in
Washington, DC earlier in February with the theme *'Science Transcending
Boundaries'.* Attendees celebrated three *scientific milestones
<https://meetings.aaas.org/program/celebrating-scientific-milestones/>*: 1)
150 years ago Dmitri Mendeleev presented the Periodic Table to the Russian
Chemical Society; 2) 50 years ago the first moon walk by Neil Armstrong,
made possible by Apollo 11?s successful landing on the moon; and 3) the
first *ARPANET <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARPANET>* message was sent
from the University of California, Los Angeles to the Stanford Research
Institute. This early network became the basis for today?s Internet. In the
case of the latter two, not only was a *large cake cut
<http://bit.ly/2BT6GK0>* and distributed, but also a panel convened of
original ARPANET researchers/engineers *Vint Cerf*, *Stephen D.
Crocker*, *Robert
E. Kahn*, *Leonard Kleinrock* and *David Walden*.

Today, *Wednesday 27 February 2019* at *2pm* ET (19:00 UTC) the *Internet
Society Livestream Channel <https://isoc.live/> *will restream that panel.
