E08 Podcast: The Regional Networks

This twenty-eight minute podcast features a session recorded at the EDUCAUSE 2008 Annual Conference. This panel presentation, "The Regional Networks," features:

  • Guy T. Almes, Director for the Academy for Advanced Telecommunications and Learning Technologies at Texas A&M University
  • Douglas S. Gale, President of Information Technology Associates
  • Richard Mandelbaum, Principal of Xynetics

This panel, representing the visionary pioneers of the nascent Internet in the late 1980s and early 1990s, discusses the critical role played by the regional networks. Ultimately benefiting institutions of all types and sizes, the regional networks solved formidable technical problems, created critical interoperability standards, developed organizational models, and evangelized for new applications. Without the work of the regional networks, neither higher education nor the global information web would work the way they do today. Streaming video for this session is also available.
WINNER: 2008 Catalyst Award.
