Its always great to see and hear from the pioneers. Too bad Al Gore wasn't there to chime in.

It's always amusing to take jabs at Gore for his ridiculous claim.

Should also point out that the triumvirate of Digital Equipment Corp. (DEC)--remember those guys, Intel, and Xerox also had a hand in creating the 10-Mbit Ethernet standard that prevailed over the IBM token ring network and others. Funny how much history gets lost in time.

IMHO, the token ring is a superior protocol! It is deterministic, one could allocate bandwidth and priority to a given node, and many other benefits. The problem was marketing ant the greediness and over protection of IBM. And look at the current Ethernet! Just a point-to-point, switched network, with a single point of failure.
