"TCP/IP, since it's beginnings in the late 1960's, has gone on to
the predominant way that computers communicate over networks.
Based on open standards, TCP/IP has allowed for the flourishing of the
Internet as well as the ushering in of a communications revolution.
This GNUbies meeting will discuss the history of TCP/IP, how it became
as popular as it is and how it functions as a part of any operating
system that uses it.
We we will examine TCP/IP's design and organization and how these factors
have contributed to it's flexibility and adoption over time."
