Happy Birthday, RFC!
40 years ago today, the RFC (Request For Comment) was born --
RFC 1, "Host Software"
, was written April 7, 1969. Steve Crocker, the author,
described its genesis in an op-ed piece for the New York Times
. The humble RFC system is the basis for the entire infrastructure of the Web; it's amazing how far rough consensus and running code will get you.
