Abstract:
The Internet ranks among the greatest achievements of 20th century  
computer science.  The basic technology was so well conceived that it  
has remained virtually unchanged despite completely new applications  
and dramatic growth in the number of connected computers and  
traffic.  This eclectic talk presents a series of lessons drawn from  
the Internet experience that may help us better understand how to  
proceed with new research.  It considers the design of protocols,  
general principles, technologies, the underlying architecture, the  
effect of economics on networking research, and ways that  
experimental research projects can be organized to ensure success.
