In 2019 I'm reading one RFC a day in chronological order starting from the very first one. More on this project here. There is a table of contents for all my RFC posts.

New dates

RFC-246 is titled “Network Graphics Meeting”. It's authored by Al Vezza of MIT and dated October 5, 1971.

The technical content

RFC-232 let everyone know that the Network Graphics Meeting was going to be postponed to November or December and would still be held somewhere near San Francisco. This RFC lets everyone know that the new dates are November 21-23, 1971 and the meeting will be held at the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Project.


According to the latest stats from RFC-240, the Stanford AI group's ARPANET connection has been fully dead. I'm wondering if hosting this meeting will spur them to get back online. It's happened before with other meeting hosts who were seemingly shamed into fixing their network implementations!
