Internet pioneers Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn are being awarded America's highest civilian honour.
The pair will be given the Presidential Medal of Freedom along with 12 other recipients in a ceremony at the White House on Wednesday.

The two men co-created the basic networking protocol, called TCP/IP, that keeps the net running to this day.

One for the good guys..

Nowadays if they followed the usual pattern ..they'd have patented it to some sleeze company in the caribbean ..and then promptly started sueing everyone that would n't pay them for using it ..

Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn certainly deserve this honour. TCP/IP and its history is a model which many aspects of society would do well to mimic.
