Commercialization of the Internet

Former chairman of Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) and Network Solutions (NSI), Michael Daniels will give a talk on the commercialization of the Internet in the 1990s, as well as offer a glimpse into the future challenges on Internet regulation, security and privacy issues.

With co-author Bob Beyster, founder, former CEO and chairman of Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), Daniels recently published the book Names, Numbers, and Network Solutions. It is the story of NSI, then a small Virginia technology company, that helped bring about the commercialization of the Internet by providing access to the network and its domain name system.

Daniels and Beyster provide an insider’s view of the process of commercializing government-funded technology, and how success is anything but inevitable. Mike will be available to sign books, which can be purchased at the event or via Amazon.

When: Tuesday, February 25, 2014 · 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Where: UC San Diego campus in the J. Robert Beyster Auditorium · Wells Fargo Hall · 1st Floor · Rady School of Management
