BELIEVED THAT KNOWLEDGE IS WORTHACQUIRING AND THAT THE

SCIENTIFIC METHOD IS SUPERIOR TOSUPERSTITION AND LEACH CRAFT.

OH, GARCON!

THE AGE OF 30!

LA-DEE-DAA!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)NATION, IT'S CLEAR WHAT'S GOING

ON HERE.

THE PRESIDENT HAS SENIORITIS.

HE'S IN THE LAST TWO SEMESTERSOF HIS PRESIDENCY, AND HE'S

TOTALLY CHECKED OUT.

TOSSING BACK BEERS, LATE NIGHTBULL SESSIONS WITH FRIENDS,

TRAVELING ACROSS EUROPE, ANDIT'S A HUGE MISTAKE, SIR.

IT MAY SEEM LIKE FUN TO TAKESOME TIME OFF AND FIND YOURSELF

ABROAD, BUT, TRUST ME, IT NEVERWORKS OUT THE WAY YOU HOPE IT

WILL.

TED -- AND YOU KNOW, YOUGET STUCK FOR 12 HOURS ON THE

BORDER BETWEEN FRANCE AND ITALYBECAUSE OF A RAIL STRIKE, AND

YOU DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY FORFOOD, ALL YOU'VE GOT ARE TWO

BOTTLES OF WINE, BUT NO WINEOPENER, BUT YOU MEET TWO CUTE

GIRLS FROM THE RHODE ISLANDSCHOOL OF DESIGN IN THE NEXT CAR

TO TRAVEL TO PISA TOGETHER,WHERE YOU ALL SHARE ONE BIG ROOM

AND THINGS ARE LOOKING POSITIVE,IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN,

EXCEPT SARAH WON'T GO FOR A WALKWITH TED SO YOU CAN BE ALONE

WITH BRIDGET.

EVEN THOUGH IT'S PRETTY CLEAR TOEVERYONE THAT BRIDGET IS OPEN TO

IT.

AT MINIMUM, WE'RE TALKINGTONGUE, BIG TIME.

I MEAN, EVEN BRIDGET IS TRYINGTO GET SARAH TO TAKE A WALK --

JUST AROUND THE BLOCK -- BUT,NO, SARAH IS ROOTED TO THE

GROUND LIKE A GOD DAMN OAK.

(LAUGHTER)(APPLAUSE)

AND THE MOMENT PASSES, AND ITWILL HAUNT YOU FOR THE REST OF

YOUR LIFE.

IS SOMETHING THAT MIGHT HAPPEN.

SO, MR. PRESIDENT, JUST TURN INTHE EURRAIL PASS, COME HOME,

BUCKLE DOWN AND HIT THE BOOKSBECAUSE LET'S FACE IT, YOU ONLY

HAVE TWO YEARS LEFT BEFOREGRADUATION BECAUSE YOU

AND YOU'RE LOOKING AT AN F INECON.

FOLKS, I DON'T FRIGHTEN EASY ANDI DON'T KNOW WHY, AND THAT

SCARES ME.

THIS IS THE THREATDOWN!

(SIRENS)ALL BEAR EDITION.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)FOLKS, LONG-TIME VIEWERS WITH

SHORT-TERM MEMORY WILL KNOW THATI AM NO FAN OF BEARS -- BROWN,

BLACK, GUMMY, EVEN CHARMIN.

I'M SORRY, BUT I'M NOT GOING TOTRUST SOME MURDEROUS GRIZZLY

WITH THE CLEANING OF MY BATHINGSUIT AREAS.

I WILL DRAG MY BUTT ALONG THEGRASS LIKE GOD INTENDED.

BUT RECENTLY, THESE BERNSTEINBRUTES INFILTRATED OUR MOST

SACRED INSTITUTION.

>> ONE WILD ANIMAL THINKS HEDESERVES THE COMFORT OF THE

HOME.

>> CHECK OUT THE BEAR IN MYNEIGHBOR'S YARD ON HIS HAMMOCK.

>> DAYTONA BEACH HOME OWNERVINCENT JAMES SNAPPED THESE

PHOTOS TO PROVE THAT, YES, ABEAR WAS NAPPING IN HIS HAMMOCK.

JAMES SAYS THE BEAR HAD BEENRUMMAGING THROUGH THE TRASHCANS,

THEN CLIMBED INTO THE HAMMOCK"LIKE HE WAS A TOURIST OR

SOMETHING."

>> >> Stephen: YES, A TOURIST!

OR SOMETHING!

IT'S ALL IN THE BEAR'S GUIDEBOOK -- "LET'S GO: EAT

CHILDREN."

FRANKLY, I CAN'T IMAGINEANYTHING WORSE THAN A BEER IN A

HAMMOCK, EXCEPT A BEAR IN ABANANA HAMMOCK.

AND THAT BRINGS ME TO THREATNUMBER THREE -- LEISURE-TIME

BEARS!

FOLKS, DON'T BE FOOLED -- THATBEAR IS NOT USING A HAMMOCK TO

RELAX.

HOW STRESSFUL CAN BEING A BEARBE?

"I NEED THAT SALMON ON MY DESKIN 15 MINUTES, OR YOU'RE FIRED

FROM THE FOREST!"NO!

THEY'RE JUST LAYING IN WAIT,FOLKS.

HERE'S THEIR PLAN: IT'S THE ENDOF THE WORKDAY, YOU WANT TO

RELAX SO YOU GRAB A MIKE'S HARDLEMONADE, CRANK THE BUFFETT AND

JUMP IN YOUR HAMMOCK.

SUDDENLY, INSTEAD OFCHEESEBURGER IN PARADISE, IT'S

MAN-BERGER IN BEAR-A-DISE!

TRADEMARK!

RETURN MY CALLS, WEIRD AL.

NATION, BEARS WILL STOP ATNOTHING UNTIL THEY'VE TURNED OUR

SUMMER FUN INTO THEIR HUNTINGGROUNDS.

SO TAKE PRECAUTIONS.

MAKE SURE THERE'S NO BEAR AT THEEND OF YOUR SLIP AND SLIDE, OR

IN THE BACK OF YOUR TANDEM BIKE,OR THAT THE SHARK AT THE BEACH

ISN'T JUST A BEER IN A SHARKSUIT.

OKAY?

THAT HAPPENED.

THAT HAPPENED.

THAT IS BASED ON A TRUE STORY.

AND FOLKS, HAMMOCKS AREN'T THEONLY AMERICAN LEISURE ACTIVITIES

BEARS HAVE THEIR EYES ON BECAUSEOVER A SIX-YEAR PERIOD AT

CROATIA'S KUTEREVO BEAR REFUGE,RESEARCHERS REPORTED MULTIPLE

ACTS OF FELLATIO BETWEEN TWOMALE BEARS.

THAT'S RIGHT.

THESE COUNTRY BEARS ARE HAVING AJAMBOREE.

BUT THAT'S NO JUG THEY'REBLOWING ON.

AND THAT BRINGS ME TO THREATNUMBER TWO.

GAY BEARS!

I HAVE LONG FEARED WHAT WOULDHAPPEN IF THE TWO GREATEST

THREATS TO AMERICA EVER TEAMEDUP.

IF THIS GOES ANY FURTHER, WECOULD END UP WITH A WHOLE

COMMUNITY OF GAY MEN PATTERNINGTHEMSELVES AFTER THESE ANIMALS.

AND MAKE NO MISTAKE!

THIS IS A LIFESTYLE CHOICE!

RESEARCHERS SAW SMOKEY THEPOLE-SMOKER OVER HERE ENGAGE IN

28 ACTS OF FELLATIO OVER 116HOURS, AVERAGING ONE ACT FOR

EVERY FOUR HOURS.

TRULY TERRIFYING.

I HAD NO IDEA BEARS HAD THATMANY BIRTHDAYS.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) YESSCIENTISTS TELL YOU TO CLAP TO

SCARE THE BEARS AWAY.

FINALLY, I BRING YOU THE MOST

TERRIFYING BEAR IN THE HISTORYOF THIS PROGRAM.

MEET PYROS, A BROWN BEAR LIVINGIN THE PYRENEES MOUNTAINS.

YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL A EUROPEANBEAR BECAUSE THEY DON'T SHAVE

THEIR ARM PITS.

PYROS IS NOT ONLY A VICIOUS MANEATER, HE'S A VORACIOUS

LADYKILLER BECAUSE PYROS ISFATHER, GRANDFATHER OR GREAT

GRANDFATHER TO NEARLY ALL OF THECUBS BORN IN THE REGION OVER THE

PAST TWO DECADES.

CAN'T BLAME THE LADIES.

JUST LOOK AT HIM.

THAT THICK COAT.

THAT BROAD MUZZLE.

THAT HIGH ZYGOMATIC ARCH.

I MEAN, TRANQUILIZER GUN TO MYHEAD?

SURE.

PLUS, PYROS' SEXUAL PROWESS NOWMEANS THERE ARE ONLY FOUR OTHER

MALES, WITH JUST ONE NOT RELATEDTO HIM...

CAUSING A HUGE RISK OFINBREEDING.

WHICH BRINGS ME TO THE NUMBERONE THREAT FACING AMERICA:

PYROS THE BEER...

FOR CHANGING MY HEART ABOUTBEARS.

BECAUSE I WAS MOVED WHEN ILEARNED THAT PYROS IS "FACING

CASTRATION FOR HIS PROMISCUITY."

CASTRATION?

IS THAT NECESSARY?

DID THEY EVEN TRYABSTINENCE-ONLY EDUCATION?

YOU SEE, FOLKS, I'VE ALWAYSBELIEVED BEARS WERE GODLESS

KILLING MACHINES.

BUT PYROS' STORY OF LOST LOVE --AND PERHAPS LOST GONADS

GIVES ME PAUSE.

FOR THE FIRST TIME, I SEE THATBEARS AND I HAVE SOMETHING IN

COMMON.

HUGE BALLS.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)THIS BEAR GETS ME RIGHT HERE.

THIS IS WHERE MY BALLS START.

I SEE MYSELF IN PYROS.

I ALSO SEE PAPA BEAR BILLO'REILLY

ALL THREE OF US ARE ALPHA MALESWHO, ACCORDING TO PAPA BEAR'S

BOOK THE O'REILLY FACTOR, "HAVEDATED HUNDREDS OF WOMEN," AND

BIG GOVERNMENT WANTS TO BRING USDOWN WITH A SHARP PAIR OF

SACK-CLIPPERS. MAKE NO MISTAKE,FOLKS,

MINE WOULD BE QUITE THEFEATHER IN OBAMA'S CAP!

AND, YES, MINE HAVE FEATHERS.

SO I JUST WANT TO SAY, RUN,PYROS!

RUN FOR ALL OF US!

DON'T LET THEM HAVE YOURMAGNIFICENT MAN-SACK!

YOU HEAR ME?

YOU GET OUT OF HERE!

WAIT...

WHAT'S HE DOING?

OH, I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'SAPPROPRIATE RIGHT NOW

NOW'S NOT REALLY THE TIME. OH,WELL.

AT LEAST HE'S HAPPY.

SAVER THEM WHILE YOU CAN, MYFRIEND.

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK. MYGUEST HELPED CREATE THE

TECHNOLOGY THAT BECAME THEINTERNET. SO HE'S HERE

TO PROMOTE...EVERYTHING? PLEASEWELCOME VINT CERF!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)THANK YOU, VINT!

WELL, LISTEN --(LAUGHTER)

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEINGHERE.

>> I'M DELIGHTED.

>> Stephen: I'M A HUGE FAN OFYOUR WORK.

YOU WERE CREDITED WITH BEING ONEOF THE CO-FATHERS OF THE

INTERNET.

WHAT DOES CO-FATHER MEAN AND HOWMUCH DID THE INTERNET'S MOTHER

GET AROUND?

(LAUGHTER)BACK IN THE DAY?

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE THECO-FATHER OF THE INTERNET?

>> BOB CONN AND I, THE OTHERFATHER OF THE INTERNET, SAT DOWN

IN 1973 AND BEGAN DESIGNING WHATIS NOW THE INTERNET.

THE ORIGINAL PROJECT WAS DONE TOHELP THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT USE

COMPUTERS IN COMMAND ANDCONTROL.

A COMPUTER CAN HELP YOU MANAGERESOURCES BETTER WHICH MIGHT

MEAN THE SMALLER FORCE COULDOVERCOME A LARGER ONE IF THE

SMALLER ONE COULD MANAGE ITSRESOURCES BETTER THAN THE

OPPONENT.

>> Stephen: DID YOU BUILD THESWITCH WHERE THE COMPUTER TURNS

ON AND KILLS ALL OF HUMANITY?

(LAUGHTER)THAT'S THE WAY THE MOVIE GOES.

I'VE SEEN THE MOVIE.

>> THAT WASN'T THE PLAN.

>> Stephen: WHAT DO YOU MAKEAS ONE OF THE FATHERS OF THE

INTERNET OF OUR FEAR THECOMPUTERS WILL TAKE OVER AND

MAKE US OBSOLETE?

DO YOU THINK THERE IS ANYTHINGTO THAT IDEA?

>> NOT IN THAT FORM.

WHAT I DO THINK, THOUGH, IS WESHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT

COMPUTERS THAT MAKE MISTAKESBECAUSE THEY CAN MAKE MISTAKES

FASTER THAN WE CAN AND SO THEREIS A BIG ISSUE ABOUT KEEPING THE

COMPUTING ENVIRONMENT SAFE WHICHMEANS WE NEED TO BE CAREFUL

ABOUT WRITING SOFTWARE THATDOESN'T HAVE BUGS.

>> Stephen: IF YOU'RE ONE OFTHE FATHERS OF THE INTERNET, WHY

DID YOU MAKE SO IT DANGEROUS FORUS TO PLAY ON, VINT?

>> WELL, BECAUSE AT THE TIME, WEDIDN'T KNOW IT WAS GOING TO BE

AS POPULAR OR AS BIG AS IT WOULDBE.

WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE ANEXPERIMENT AND DESIGNED AND USE

FOR MILITARY AND MAYBE ACADEMICPURPOSES BUT IT GOT LOOSE AND

THE EXPERIMENT GOT LOOSE ANDBECAME PART OF THE PUBLIC.

>> Stephen: AGAIN, THAT'S PARTOF THE HORROR MOVIE I'M WRITING.

YOUR EXPERIMENT GOT LOOSE.

WHEN I GO ON, ARE ALL OF US, AREWE STILL PART OF YOUR

EXPERIMENT?

>> ABSOLUTELY.

>> Stephen: REALLY?

HOW IS THE EXPERIMENT GOING?

>> IT'S ACTUALLY GOING RATHERWELL, TO BE QUITE HONEST WITH

YOU. ABOUT 3 BILLION PEOPLEARE ONLINE RIGHT NOW AND EVERY

TIME THEY COME UP WITH NEW WAYSOF USING THE INTERNET, WE ALL

LEARN SOMETHING FROM THAT.

WHAT'S INTERESTING ABOUT THISWHOLE STORY IS THE INTERNET HAS

ALWAYS BEEN VERY OPEN TO PEOPLETRYING OUT NEW IDEAS AND WE NEED

TO KEEP IT THAT WAY.

>> Stephen: YOU HAVE BEEN ATGOOGLE SINCE 2005.

>> RIGHT.

>> Stephen: YOU'RE THEIRINTERNET EVANGELIST.

WHY DOES GOOGLE NEED AN INTERNETEVANGELIST?

AREN'T YOU PREACHING TO THECHOIR?

>> NO.

ACTUALLY, IT TURNS OUT THAT WITHONLY 3 BILLION PEOPLE ONLINE,

THERE'S ANOTHER 4 BILLION TO GO.

I'M THE CHIEF INTERNETEVANGELIST.

>> Stephen: WHO ARE THESE4 BILLION PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT

TO TWEET?

>> IT'S NOT THAT THEY DON'T WANTTO TWEET, IT'S THAT THEY DON'T

EVEN HAVE ACCESS TO THE INTERNETYET.

>> Stephen: WHERE?

ALL OVER THE WORLD, BUTLARGELY IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD.

>> Stephen: HAVE YOU TRIEDCARPET BOMBING THEM WITH FREE

AOL CDs?

BECAUSE THAT WORKED IN THE'90s FOR A LONG TIME.

(LAUGHTER)>> THAT HADN'T OCCURRED TO ME.

THE PROBLEM IS YOU HAVE TO HAVESOMETHING TO READ THE CD WITH

AND IF YOU DON'T HAVE ACOMPUTER, YOU KNOW -- THEY HAVE

MOBILE PHONES, THOUGH, AND ITHINK THIS IS IMPORTANT.

THE MOBILE PHONE HAS BECOME THEAVENUE FOR PEOPLE TO GET ACCESS

TO THE INTERNET FOR THE FIRSTTIME.

IT'S QUITE AN AMAZING MARRIAGE.

THE INTERNET WAS FIRST DESIGNEDIN '73.

THE HANDHELD MOBILE WAS DESIGNEDIN '73 BY MARTY COOPER FOR

MOTOROLA AND WE DIDN'T KNOWABOUT EACH OTHER AT ALL TILL

1983 UNTIL WE TURNED THEINTERNET ON, MARTY COOPER TURNED

ON THE FIRST HAND-HELD PHONE, SOTHE TWO TECHNOLOGIES --

>> Stephen: YOU STARTEDWORKING ON THE INTERNET IN 1973

AND YOU TURNED IT ON IN 1983?

>> IT TOOK TEN YEARS TO ACTUALLYTURN THE SYSTEM ON.

>> Stephen: WHAT WAS HAPPENINGIN THOSE TEN YEARS?

IF YOU, BOB -- OBVIOUSLY, ALGORE WAS THERE --

(LAUGHTER)>> AL SHOWED UP ABOUT 1986.

>> Stephen: THAT'S STILLPRETTY EARLY.

>> IT'S STILL EARLY ON.

WE TURNED IT ON.

HE HELPED GET IT TO SPREADBECAUSE HE HELPED THE NATIONAL

SCIENCE FOUNDATION FUND THE BIGBACKBONE, PART OF THE INTERNET

THAT LINKED ABOUT 3,000UNIVERSITIES TOGETHER PLUS THE

SUPERCOMPUTERS.

>> Stephen: SO HE DID HELPBUILD THE INTERNET?

>> HE DID HELP.

>> Stephen: YOU JUST TOOK AWAYONE OF MY FAVORITE CUDGELS.

CAN YOU STICK AROUND FOR ASECOND?

WE HAVE TO DO A COMMERCIAL BUT IWANT TO TALK MORE.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH FATHER OF THEINTERNET VINT CERF.

STICK AROUND.

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,EVERYBODY.

FATHER OF THE INTERNET VINTCERF.

IS THE AUTHOR OF THE MATRIXRELOADED, IS HE WITH US?

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> WHAT MAKES YOU THINK YOU'RE

NOT IN THE MATRIX?

(APPLAUSE)I KNOW KARATE

(LAUGHTER)DID YOU HAVE ANY IDEA OF THE

IMPACT THIS COULD HAVE?

BY THE TIME YOU TURNED IT ON IN1983 AND SAID, OKAY, IT'S

WORKING, DID YOU HAVE A SENSE OFTHE IMPACT YOU WOULD HAVE

BECAUSE 3 BILLION PEOPLE USE IT,IT'S ONLY GOING TO EXPAND.

I UNDERSTAND YOU'RE WORKING ONNOW AT JET PROPULSION

LABORATORIES ESTABLISH ANINTERPLANETARY PROTOCOL?

JESUS HAS INFLUENCED A FEWPEOPLE.

MOHAMED MADE HIS IMPACT ON THEPLANET, BUDDHA'S DONE A THING OR

TWO BUT I ONLY KNOW THOSE THREEBECAUSE I LOOKED IT UP ON

WIKIPEDIA(LAUGHTER)

SO ARE YOU AND BOB CONN, THEOTHER GUY, ARE YOU TECHNOLOGICAL

PROPHETS?

>> I THINK IT WOULD BE CLOSER TOSAY WE'RE SCIENTISTS, WE'RE

EXPERIMENTERS AND WE'RE TRYINGTO DEVICE SOMETHING THAT WOULD

WORK AND NOW WE'RE ENGINEERS ATTRYING TO EXPAND THIS THING,

MAKE IT WORK BETTER FOREVERYBODY.

AND OF COURSE WE HAVE A PROBLEM.

WHEN HE FIRST DID THE DESIGN, WEDIDN'T KNOW HOW MANY THINGS

WOULD BE ON THE INTERNET.

>> Stephen: HOW MANY THINGSARE ON THE INTERNET?

>> I DON'T KNOW, BUT I KNOWWE'VE RUN OUT OF ADDRESSES FOR

THEM.

THE PROBLEM IS WE THOUGHT4.3 BILLION WOULD BE ENOUGH --

>> Stephen: IS THAT HOW MANYI.P. ADDRESSES THERE ARE?

>> 4.3 BILLION.

IT'S A 32-BYTE NUMBER AND THAT'SWHAT WE STARTED WITH.

WE RAN OUT OF THE NUMBERS IN2011 SO WE INVENTED ANOTHER

VERSION WITH 128 BYTES OFADDRESS IN THEM.

THEM.

I'LL DO THE MATH.

>> Stephen: GO AHEAD(LAUGHTER)

(DOING MATH OUT LOUD)>> Stephen: SO IS THAT ENOUGH

OF NUMBER BYTES?

>> WELL, I HOPE SO BECAUSETHAT'S ALL WE'VE GOT RIGHT NOW

IS THE TEN TO THE 38th ADDRESSES.

>> Stephen: AS THE FATHER OFTHE INTERNET WOULD YOU LIKE TO

APOLOGIZE FOR THE COMMENTSECTION ON YAHOO NEWS?

VERBAL WAR CRIMES!

(LAUGHTER)VINT CERF, THANK YOU FOR GIVING

US SOMETHING TO SURF.

THANK YOU.

(APPLAUSE)THANK YOU SO MUCH!

VINT CERF, INTERNET EVANGELIST,FATHER OF THE INTERNET!

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK!

>> Stephen: THAT'S IT FOR THEREPORT EVERYBODY, GOODNIGHT
