Hi all,

 Please join me and congratulate Nii Quaynor who has just be awarded the
Jon Postel Award. 


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.
