​How time flies! A quarter of a century since the Internet Society was
founded, just as the network emerged from it's NSF chrysalis to wider
world. But plenty of water under the bridge. And who knows where we might
end up in the next quarter century. Well, ISOC has taken a shot at figuring
that out, and it's findings will be in the Global Report mentioned below,
which, along with the 4th Internet Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, will be
the main features of InterCommunity 2017. This year in NYC we are doing
ICOMM in style, with a lunch at the Cornell Club! Hope you can find time,
and funds, to join us.
