Jon Postel

Data di nascita: 6. Agosto 1943
Data di morte: 16. Ottobre 1998

Jonathan Bruce Postel è stato un informatico statunitense che ha contribuito in maniera significativa allo sviluppo della rete Internet, in particolare per quanto riguarda la creazione e l'adozione di alcuni standard.

È noto soprattutto per essere il redattore e il curatore della serie di documenti denominata RFC. Il premio Postel Award della Internet Society è stato così nominato in suo onore, così come il Postel Center all'Information Sciences Institute, University of Southern California. Probabilmente la sua eredità più conosciuta riguarda la RFC 793, che contiene un principio di robustezza che spesso viene citato come Legge di Postel: be conservative in what you do, be liberal in what you accept from others . Wikipedia

„Of course, there isn’t any "God of the Internet." The Internet works because a lot of people cooperate to do things together.“

—  Jon Postel

When asked "What do you think of being called a god?" in "Heavenly Father of the NET", an interview article in NetWorker (Summer 1997); This refers to a statement "if the Net does have a god, he is probably Jon Postel", which appeared in the British magazine The Economist.
Contesto: I think they called me the closest thing to a God of the Internet. But at the end, that article wasn’t very complimentary, because the author suggested that I wasn’t doing a very good job, and that I ought to be replaced by a "professional."

„TCP implementations will follow a general principle of robustness: be conservative in what you do, be liberal in what you accept from others.“

—  Jon Postel, RFC 793: Transmission Control Protocol

The "Robustness Principle", RFC 793 http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc0793.txt, Transmission Control Protocol, entire text of section 2.10 (September 1981).

„In general, an implementation must be conservative in its sending behavior, and liberal in its receiving behavior.“

—  Jon Postel

RFC 791 http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc0791.txt, Internet Protocol (September 1981)
Often shortened to Be liberal in what you accept, and conservative in what you send.

„A name indicates what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A route indicates how we get there.“

—  Jon Postel

RFC (Request for Comments) document: RFC 791 http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc0791.txt, Internet Protocol (September 1981)
This is often mistakenly attributed to Jon Postel, but it is actually a very slight variation on a quotation from John Shoch; both RFC-791 and its earlier version RFC-760 include, at the point in the text where this passage appears, a reference to Shoch's paper Inter-Network Naming, Addressing, and Routing, which is the original source of this observation.
