I strongly concur.  Even though I am young, I still have studied a lot of 
networking history.  I knew who Bob Metcalfe was.

However, his InfoWorld article had some points which just made him look 
like a complete newbie to this arena.  He didn't do research, and 
therefore looked like a Web-Magazine-of-the-Month editor, using buzzwords 
and appearing to have no clue of what was really going on.

Take it as you please,
