Content as Network

Hero Worshiping

It is kind of rare to meet your hero in person. Rarer yet is to be able to work with your hero on a regular basis.

So, it is a pretty mind blowing for me to say that I sit only a few doors down from Van Jacobson ( who is the primary contributor to TCP/IP which in term provides the foundation for internet as we know it today.

Content Centric Networking (CCN)

Van is leading the effort for content centric networking (CCN). This is a high level talk that he gave a while back that explains what he has in mind.

CCN for the rest of us

Naturally, if you are not fully conversant with the 7 layers of network protocol hierarchy, e.g. business development folks like me, too need an answer on what is CCN.

This is what I say, we are working on the next generation of internet. :-p!

I hope to explore the roadmap and implications of CCN in periodic entries. Suffices to say, the CCN group is very busy at work right now.
