Daniel Lynch

Carl Malamud interviews Daniel Lynch, former computer manager at SRI, founder and president of Interop Company, and a long-time member of the Internet Architecture Board. This interview was conducted in January, 1993, just before Lynch stepped down as a member of the IAB. The interview shows the unique contribution that Daniel Lynch made to that body.

In this interview, Carl Malamud and Dan Lynch cover a wide range of topics, from the proper role for the telphone company to the reasons that the current Internet does not yet address the needs of the small corporate network. Lynch shares his views on why unified global directories cannot work and why Netware is just as important as TCP/IP.
