i had the chance to meet and talk with hubert zimmermann in july 2005. in memoriam, i did a short radio play, in which he tells how he came to networking in 1966, why he didn't leave paris in 1972, his time at ISO, and why a stronger support of the TCP/IP community at ISO might have made a difference in the late 1970s, early 1980s ...
