Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lawrence G. Roberts received the Draper Prize in 2001 and the Principe de Asturias Award in 2002 "for the development of the Internet" along with Leonard Kleinrock, Robert Kahn, and Vinton Cerf. As a program manager and office director at the Advanced Research Projects Agency, Roberts and his team created packet switching and the ARPANET, which was the predecessor to the modern Internet. Lawrence Roberts grew up in Westport, Connecticut as the son of Elliott and Elizabeth Roberts, who both had earned their doctorates in chemistry. During his youth, he built a Tesla coil, assembled a television, and designed a telephone network built from transistors for his parent's Girl Scout camp.show more
