Aloha to the Web with Norm Abramson
Norm Abramson, Professor Emeritus of the University of Hawai'i
David Lassner, Chief Information Officer, University of Hawai'i
This month's High Tech Hawai'i features a pre-recorded presentation by Norm Abramson, Professor Emeritus of the University of Hawaii and father of the Aloha protocols, which underlie the Internet and most modern networks in use today. Dr. Abramson will describe the development of the Aloha protocols to create the Aloha Network, the first wireless packet data network in the world, which connected the Hawaiian islands. Lessons from this early work are also applied to today's Internet.
Now in its 11th year of production, High Tech Hawaii is a live monthly call-in show produced by the University of Hawaii to shed light on high technology activities within the state. It airs live on the fourth Tuesday of each month during the academic year from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. High Tech Hawaii can be seen on PEG Access cable channel 55 throughout the state. It is cablecast live on all islands except Maui, where it is tape-delayed. A live webcast is available anywhere on the Internet at <http://www.hawaii.edu/hth/>. During the live airing of the program, questions may be called in to 956-5670 from Oahu or 800-342-7949 (neighbor islands) or sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
