To highlight the Internet’s profound impact on our world, the Internet Society has established an Internet Hall of Fame which identifies, recognizes, and celebrates individuals who have fuelled the development of the Internet and used it to transform the lives of people throughout the world.

2014 Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony

The 2014 Internet Hall of Fame awards ceremony was hosted on 8 April 2014 in Hong Kong.  The ceremony was one of the highlights of the International IT Fest 2014 in Hong Kong, 7-20 April.

How you can follow the Internet Hall of Fame

Reflecting the dynamic, global nature of the Internet, the awards ceremony will move to a different region of the world each year. 

Following Hong Kong, the ceremony will be held in Latin America in 2015, Africa in 2016, and North America in 2017. 


The Internet Hall of Fame thanks our 2014 sponsors for their generous support of our mission: To celebrate the people who bring the Internet to life.  Their involvement helps the Internet Hall of Fame recognize the leaders and luminaries who have helped create Internet history and allows the Hall of Fame to better capture that history for the world to see and share.
