The Internet Society, a global nonprofit dedicated to the open development, evolution, and use of the Internet, this week presented the University of Oregon's Steven Huter with the Jonathan B. Postel Service Award in recognition of his years of work helping to bring the Internet and computer networks to more than 120 countries.

Huter was chosen for the award, which includes a $20,000 honorarium, because of his leadership and personal contributions to the Network Startup Resource Center (NSRC), where he led the development and implementation of programs that provide technical training, equipment, and expertise across Africa, the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, North America, and South America.

Said Huter, "The most important thing I learned from...the NSRC is to cultivate a culture of network operators who help each other via technical exchange and resource sharing; this is an effective way to empower more network engineers and enable continuous progress for a community of peers in all regions of the world."
