The amazing career of Danny Cohen was celebrated at Google in March 2013, surrounded by the pioneers of networking.

In 1967, Danny Cohen developed the first real-time visual flight simulator on a general purpose computer. Starting in 1973, Cohen led several projects on real-time interactive applications over the ARPANet and the Internet, such as packet-voice (also known as Voice over Internet Protocol) and packet-video.

After serving on the computer science faculty at Harvard University (1969--1973) and Caltech (California Institute of Technology) in 1976, Cohen joined USC/ISI (University of Southern California/Information Sciences Institute) to work on a project designed to allow interactive, real-time speech over the ARPANet. Cohen worked at USC/ISI (1973--1993), where he started many network related projects, including Packet-Voice, Packet-Video, and Internet Concepts. He started the MOSIS project in 1980. Cohen also started the FastXchange project (Electronic commerce), Digital Library, and ATOMIC which was the forerunner of Myrinet, a high-performance system area network. In 1993, he worked on Distributed Interactive Simulation through several projects funded by DoD (United States Department of Defense). In 1994, Danny co-founded Myricom (with Chuck Seitz, et al.) which commercialized Myrinet.
Cohen served on several panels and boards for DoD, NIH (National Institutes of Health), and NRC (United States National Research Council), including 5 years on the USAF Scientific Advisory Board. He served as both a factual and expert witness in several patent infringement legal cases about VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). Cohen is a commercial pilot with SEL/MEL/SES and Instrument ratings.
Cohen is probably best known for his 1980 paper "On Holy Wars and a Plea for Peace" which adopted the terminology of endianness for computing.
