This second episode examines the advent of the PC and the need to connect them all to a network. But first someone had to figure out how to do it. That guy was Bob Metcalfe, founder of 3Com. As the market for networking evolved the battle began in earnest; 3Com, Sun, Novell, Cisco and Microsoft entered the market creating a civil war and billion-dollar partnerships21ocn036145761book19701.00Resource sharing computer networksConference proceedings11ocn063277426mix1.00Roberts, L.

CerfFollowing a brief overview of his background, Cerf describes his involvement with the ARPA network, including his work for the Network Measurement Center while a graduate student at the University of California, Los Angeles, and his relationships with Bolt, Beranek and Newman, Robert Kahn, Lawrence Roberts, and the Network Working Group. Other topics include: various influences on the development of the TCP/IP protocol, Information Processing Techniques Office (IPTO) funding while he was at Stanford University, his decision in 1976 to become a program manager for networking projects at IPTO, and the military use of IPTO networking projects11ocn063283039mix1.00Frank, HowardOral history interview with Howard FrankThe interview begins with a discussion of Frank's background in networking, including his education, work in the Office of Emergency Preparedness, and founding of the Network Analysis Corporation. Frank then describes his work on ARPANET, including interaction with Lawrence Roberts and the Information Processing Techniques Office (IPTO), relationship with Bolt, Beranek and Newman and Leonard Kleinrock, and work on other network-related projects. The interview concludes with some general comments about IPTO as a government agency11ocn063276508mix1.00Kleinrock, LeonardOral history interview with Leonard KleinrockKleinrock begins the interview with a discussion of his background including his participation in the Staff Associate Program at Lincoln Laboratory in the early 1960s, his dissertation work on queuing theory, and his move to UCLA. As one of the main contractors for the ARPANET, Kleinrock describes his involvement in discussions before the official Advanced Research Projects Agency request was issued, the people involved in the ARPANET work at UCLA, the installation of the first node of the network, the Network Measurement Center, and his relationships with Lawrence Roberts and the Information Processing Techniques Office, Bolt, Beranek and Newman, and the Network Analysis Corporation11ocn062481525mix1.00Ornstein, SeveroOral history interview with Severo OrnsteinHistory11ocn063307045mix1.00Heart, FrankOral history interview with Frank HeartHistoryFollowing a brief overview of his fifteen years of experience at Lincoln Laboratory (including work on Whirlwind and SAGE), Heart describes his move to Bolt, Beranek and Newman (BBN) and how he became involved with the ARPA network project. As the manager of the project at BBN for over ten years, Heart discusses his relationships with the groups at BBN, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and Lawrence Roberts, and the host community. Some of the problems encountered and surprises in the development of the network are addressed by Heart, as are the changes he has seen in DARPA over the years of his involvement with them11ocn063288515mix1.00Schwartz, Jules IOral history interview with Jules I.
