For the last two years, I have been the chairman of the SATAI Network marketing committee. We are promoting San Antonio as a center for new and emerging technologies.
Tonight, we held our first Stars of Innovation Gala where we recognized pioneering technology leaders who live and work here in San Antonio. I nominated Dr. Ben Barker who won one of the awards. Ben is best known as being part of the original design team who created ARPANet, the original Internet. Ben is credited as having sent the first email. Think if him as being the Wilbur Wright of the Internet.
