On October 29, 2009, UCLA held a major event celebrating the 40th anniversary of the internet, which began when UCLA professor Leonard Kleinrock, along with a team of UCLA engineers, sent the first host-to-host message over a network back in 1969. Tasked with connecting the physical event to the global stage, we produced a fully interactive live stream event. Featuring talks from such notables as Arianna Huffington, Google VP Shiva Shivakumar, and Cisco SVP Gary Bridge, over 50,000 viewers tuned in to watch the event live, submitting questions via comment, chat, and Twitter. The event garnered tens of the thousands of viewers, thousands of tweets, a front page feature on Ustream.TV, and was covered by CNN, NPR, USA Today, and National Geographic.
