It's been 20 years today (Oct 16, UTC). Hard to believe.

At NANOG two weeks ago, we had an interesting discussion at 
one of the lunch tables. One of the subjects we discussed 
was the original IANA, and RFC Editor, Jon Postel.

Seven of the ten people at the table had never heard of him. 
Maybe these days it no longer matters who he was, and what 
he meant to where we are today.

Wow, was it a table of folks new to network engineering?
If so, then schooling; if not, then clue bat...  :-)
