Ethernet

Today in 1980 the Ethernet specifications were published by Xerox working with Intel and Digital Equipment Corporation (DIX) and the foundation of affordable networking was born.

That work is based on a wireless networking project at the University of Hawaii (ALOHAnet) lead by a brilliant visionary, Norman Abramson, who I also call a friend.
