Please join me and congratulate Nii Quaynor who has just be awarded the Jon
The Award, a crystal ball and a 20.000 $ check was handed to him by Lynn
St.Amour, CEO and President of ISOC , at the 70th IETF in Vancouver , a
meeting attended by motre than 1,000 participants.
In his brief address, Nii indicates that the award was both a recognition
and a call for a more pronounced African participation to the development of
the Internet. He intends to donate the money to the african ict fund being
contemplated by Afrinic as a contribution to training and exposing african
young engineers and network professionals.
You will agree with me that Nii , as one of the african pionners of Internet
development amply deserves the reward.
