Paul Baran deserved all the accolades and tributes he received, and more; he has well been called "the father of the internet" His invention of the "packet switch" (work he engaged in for the Rand Corp.) , too long ignored and disbelieved by the civilian minds in the US pentagon, was certainly the key to that and to many of the military's communication problems..
I was a classmate of his in electrical engineering and graduated with him in June 1949 from Drexel; he was brilliant, and humble
What a wonderful tribute to a truly great visionary.
Thank you, Paul, for your grace and intellect, and for making quite a few of us live easier lives.
I am sure Mr Baran will be missed,But rest assure,The almighty God of comfort has something in store for our loved ones. 2Cor.1:3&4 Atlanta,Ga.

Paul, the little i heard about you told me so much. Selfless and enchanting you sound when you made this pronouncement, "The Internet is really the work of a thousand people".Little the world have had of your kind. You inspire we young folks to strive for excellence even when turned down. May your soul rest in perfect peace
My deepest sympathy to Mr. Baran's family, know that his message blocks are something which have definitely helped the world and I am so glad that he got a chance to see his idea aid as the Arpanet (now Internet) began May Mr. Baran RIP what he developed will continue to assist in the enrichment of lives around the world.
I was a young software engineer at StratCom and remember above all Paul's gentleness. Generous with his time, he was a truly humble leader. He was genuinely concerned that employees develop themselves and certainly seemed more concerned about that than his equity. I will always remember him fondly.
Deep condolences from a professional colleague and admirer.
I had the privilege of working with Paul on patent matters from the founding days of Packet Technologies and its successors, as well as 3Com, Metricom, and Com21.
