New Episode of Internet Innovators!*Crocker Reveals a Behind-the-Scenes
Look at Internet History*

Steve Crocker is known as the man who wrote the instructions for the
Internet - in his twenties. But at one time, he was just a young graduate
student trying to solve a set of problems.

"We knew we didn't know all the answers - we were not going to design a
complete system, we were going to design a toolkit,"  Crocker said of the
"informal group" which included life-long friend Vint Cerf and other
now-famous Internet pioneers.

In fact, Crocker said when he was given the "clerical task" of writing down
what they were doing, he had many a sleepless night.

"I was fearful the mere act of writing down what we were thinking about
might trigger a backlash," he continued.

"No one had chartered us, we had no authority. I was afraid it might seem
like we were being presumptuous - like we were insisting that we were in
charge. It caused a number of sleepless nights," he said.
