“He has been a long time proponent of the use and expansion of the Internet and the technology behind it. His initial experience with the Internet, then known as ARPAnet, was when he was in graduate school in 1985 in Oregon State University. His MSEE thesis centered around the creation of a TCP/IP stack for the then MS OS/2 operating system (tinyurl.com/HarishPillayThesis). He was one of the main organizers of the inaugural APRICOT conference in 1996 held in Singapore.”
We fully support Harish and hope you will too.
