In this episode of Radio Corona, Gideon Lichfield, editor in chief of MIT Technology Review, discussed the future of our connected world with Vint Cerf, one of the people known as a "father of the internet."
Cerf owes that title to having co-created TCP/IP, the communication protocols that underlie everything that happens on the internet, along with Bob Kahn. He now works as Chief Internet Evangelist at Google and has received a Presidential Medal of Freedom and a Turing Award, among many others, for his early work on the internet. He tweeted on March 30 that he had tested positive for covid-19 and was recovering.
The interview occurred on May 5th and you can watch it below. You can check out our Radio Corona homepage to watch previous episodes.
