Pioneer To Islanders: "Face Internet Challenges"

Internet Pioneer Urges Pacific Islanders To Face Internet Challenges During PacINET 2008

Suva - Fiji, Friday April 11, 2008 -- Dr Vinton G. Cerf, a co-founder and creator of the Internet, has urged Pacific islanders to rise to the challenges and opportunities that the Internet provides to the Pacific and the world.

"The Internet is one of the most valuable contemporary tools for linking to the world-wide community for business, education, cultural exchange and travel. No one has a "corner" on creativity and the Pacific Island populations should have equal footing in the cyber world where they can leverage their own, unique talents.", said Dr Cerf.

His message, now available on YouTube (, comes ahead of this year's PacINET, the Pacific's leading annual I CT conference organised by the Pacific Islands Chapter of the Internet Society (PICISOC).
