Vint Cerf just said hi. He was telling me about his first day at work at Google. He wore what he called the “evangelism robes.” They are eccentric Spanish robes. He said the younger crowd at Google didn’t know how to react (they didn’t understand that he was making fun of his new role as an evangelist).
“They think I’m an old fart,” he told me, “but I want them to know I’m a weird old fart.”
Yes, he gave me permission to blog this. He’s a really enjoyable person to meet. What an honor to meet the guy who invented the Internet. You gotta love a guy who has some humor about himself.
