Paul Baran invented packet-switching. He passed away over the weekend. Paul was one of the "good guys." His death saddens me very much. We have Paul to thank for the internet, and for keeping us alive long enough to realize the internet. In this initial segment of his interview, Paul describes the problem which led to his inventing packet-switching -- the need for robust communications between missile silos under nuclear attack -- and his seminal concern with computer privacy issues.

Directed by Hud Nordin.
