Hello again, reddit!
I’m an inventor, an innovator, an engineer, a teacher, and a National Inventors Hall of Fame inductee. I’m a jack-of-all-tech-trades, a Longhorn, a farmer, and a hiker of the wilds of Patagonia. With David R. Boggs, I created Ethernet, a technology that changed the world.
Ethernet has withstood the test of time for more than 40 years, thanks to the collective hard work of many, many individuals. Thanks to its standardization through the IEEE 802.3 Standard for Ethernet, this little invention of ours will continue to shape the future for what I hope is many more years to come.
I’m Bob Metcalfe and I enjoyed my last AMA so much, I thought I’d come back for round two. Please ask me anything!
