I just found out that Vint Cerf, one of the founding fathers of the Internet and current Google employee, will be giving a talk in the Seattle area later today. I’ll be attending the talk and have a list of questions I’d like to ask during the Q&A session. However I suspect that a number of my readers likely have better questions than those I can come up with. Here are my questions, let me know what you think of them and suggest better ones if you don’t like mine

As usual, I’ll blog the proceedings as a Trip Report

Your three questions are direct and to the point.

I'll be especially interested in Cerf's answers to 1 and 3, because Google appears to have expressed their position on 2 by their July 10 and July 20 posts. However, "Open Applications" has an "Open Source" ring to me as it appears in the July 20 post. It would be interesting to know if "consumers should be able to download and utilize any software applications, content, or services they desire" implies " without payment of license or other fees other than fees for connection time."

Here's a quick recap of the auction rules and some of my thoughts about Vint Cerf:
