Last Wednesday at Nourse Theater, Cerf sat down with journalist Jacob Ward to discuss all things Internet. The hour and a half conversation danced through many topics including the Internet’s early beginnings, today’s increasingly connected consumer appliances, computer security, and advances in biomedical engineering. Cerf’s sharp-wit, good-humor, and knowledge of latest technology trends were notable during the conversation, however, we found Ward’s questions to be somewhat nebulous and less technically focused which may have left tech-savvy audience members less engaged.
