This episode of the History of Networking is a little different. Because it was the first of April, we had a roundtable of several 1 April RFC authors discussing their work, and a short discussion on the history of the 1 April RFC series.

The authors we have on the episode are Donald Eastlake, RFC3092, the Etymology of Foo; Richard Hay, RFC5841, TCP Option to Denote Packet Mood; Carlos Pignataro and Joe Clarke, RFC6593, Service Undiscovery Using Hide-and-Go-Seek for the Domain Pseudonym System; Carlos Pignataro, RFC6592, The Null Packet; and Ross Callon, RFC1925, The Twelve Networking Truths.

Listen to the interview:
