RIP Paul Baran

Paul Baran, one of the brilliant men who created a technology without which our current world would not exist, died March 26, 2011. He was 84.

Dr. Baran invented the concept of packetizing digital information for transport through a network, with the packets being reassembled at their destination. This concept is one of the fundamental technologies of the Internet.

Dr. Baran was a giant.  All of us who use the Internet today stand on his shoulders.
