Sitting in his hotel suite in Las Vegas, Vint Cerf is just a short cab ride away from the showroom floor of the International Consumer Electronics Show, where thousands of devices are connecting to the Internet using technologies he helped pioneer nearly 40 years ago.

Known as one of the fathers of the Internet for pioneering technologies that enable computer networks to communicate, Mr. Cerf now serves as the chief internet evangelist for Google Inc., where he acts as something of an ambassador for the search engine giant and the Web at large.
