[The Hankyoreh, September 28 2007] 'Founding father of Internet' to visit Seoul next month

Vint Cerf, known for his leading role in creating the Internet, will visit Seoul next month to attend an international forum, informed sources said Friday.

The 64-year-old American computer scientist was invited to the forum, to be held by the South Korean daily Maeil Business Newspaper in mid-October, they said.

Cerf, along with Bob Kahn, is commonly referred to as one of the "founding fathers of the Internet" for his key technical and managerial role in the creation of the Internet and its protocol during the 1970s.
