With the father of Internet

By Nabl BenamarGuest Author

The first person I saw when arriving to the Hilton was the father of Internet: Vint Cerf. It was saturday 03/11/2012 at 7h30mn am. Yes, he arrives before the others and before the start of the IGF. Minutes later, it was a honor for me to exchange some words with him and to realize that he is one of the most modest and humble persons of the Internet ecosystem.
