RFC 2555, “30 Years of RFCs.” For those of you who don’t know, all of the standards upon which the Internet is based are documented by the IETF in RFCs (Request for Comments documents). Unlike many more formal standards organizations, the IETF has based its standards on documenting things that work in practice, instead of creating pie in the sky guidelines that are never implemented. “Rough consensus and running code” is a credo which has served the IETF from the birth of the Internet to today’s wildfire growth, and I congratulate the volunteers who’ve supported this effort for 30 years of incredible work.
