Do you know someone who has made an outstanding contribution to the global Internet? Perhaps they inspired local engineers to improve Internet access and capabilities in their region. Or maybe they made extensive contributions to the development and administration of the Internet in its early days - and are someone whose work hasn't been recognized as much as it should be.  We are seeking nominations for the 2016 #PostelAward - please consider nominating someone you think has made the Internet better in some way!  The deadline is May 18.   PLEASE SHARE this call for nominations with others!
