*Thursday June 11 2015* at *2:30pm EDT* the *Internet Society
<http://internetsociety.org> *and the *National Museum of American History
<http://americanhistory.si.edu/>* present *The Internet Age - Founders to
in *Washington DC*. This Global Innovation Summit  will examine the people
and events that led to the creation of the Internet. Prominent contributors
to the rich history of the Internet will conduct a conversation about the
diverse elements that contributed to the creation of innovations and
inventions that led to the Internet Age. The Internet is among the most
powerful and influential “inventions” ever created. But where did it come
from? Who were the people who first imagined it, and what are the inventive
technologies that enable the Internet to exist? The evolution of the
Internet continues as new innovations propel this global network of
networks into seemingly impossible realities. Please join the National
Museum of American History, the Internet Society, Internet pioneers, and
digital natives for a lively conversation about the continuum of the
Internet, from how it was imagined to where the Internet is taking us in
the future. *PANEL:* *Vint Cerf*, widely known as one of the "Fathers of
