STP Inventor Radia Perlman: Don’t Call Her “Mother Of The Internet” – SVW

Intel’s Radia Perlman: Don’t Call Her “Mother Of The Internet” – SVW.

We are covering STP in the LAN Switching and Wireless class and this interview is appropriate — it even includes an STP poem.

“The achievement that has made Perlman a household name in certain cerebral circles is the spanning tree algorithm, which she invented in 1985 while working for the now-defunct Digital Equipment Corporation.”

via Brad Clark, Cisco Network Academy Instructor from Kansas
