Tribute to Robert Taylor an innovator and a major contributor to modern computing


His ideas led to the Arpanet, the forerunner of the internet; he also played a vital role in the invention of the computer mouse. Like many inventions, the Internet was the work of countless hands. But perhaps no one deserves more credit for that world-changing technological leap than Robert W. Taylor, who died at 85 at his home in Woodside, California.

Indeed, few people were as instrumental in shaping the modern computer-connected world as he. His seminal moment came in 1966.He had just taken a new position at the Pentagon-director of the Information Processing Techniques office, part of the Advanced Research Projects Agency, known as ARPA-and on his first day on the job it became immediately obvious to him what the office lacked and what it needed.

At the time, ARPA was funding three separate computer research projects and using three separate computer terminals to communicate with them. Taylor decided that the department needed a single computer network to connect each project with the others. And he started implimenting it.


A great visionary who changed the working of the world.


We Salute him from our heart. May his soul rest in peace.
