Posted Jan 21, 2013

Earlier this month President Obama had announced his intention to add Vint Cerf, the Vice President and Chief Internet Evangelist at Google, to the National Science Board.  The National Science Board has 25 members and they are the governing body for the National Science Foundation.  The group also serves as an independent body of advisors to the President and Congress regarding science and engineering policies.  Cerf and his colleague Bob Kahn are considered “the father of the Internet.”  Vinton Cerf was responsible for the funding and the formation of ICANN from the beginning.
