About ISOC – The Internet Society

The Internet Society (ISOC) is a nonprofit organisation founded in 1992 to provide leadership in Internet related standards, education, and policy. With offices in Washington D.C., USA, and Geneva, Switzerland, it is dedicated to ensuring the open development, evolution and use of the Internet for the benefit of people throughout the world.

The Internet Society provides leadership in addressing issues that confront the future of the Internet, and is the organisational home for the groups responsible for Internet infrastructure standards, including the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the Internet Architecture Board (IAB).


Building a better internet for Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia.

    Barry, Where do you live? In Fairfax County, Virginia, we have a wonderful project, providing broadband Internet access at home to low-income students. This involves three functions: (1) A free, refurbished computer with XP Pro and Office, (2) free-installation $11 per month high-speed Internet cable access at home, and (3) free 24-hour technical support. We have completed 2 successful pilots, now are working on our first school – a middle school with about 300 low-income students now without computers. This project is a blast! More info, email gene.gaines@gainesgroup.com

     Fact is, as a global organization, the Internet Society uses the global standard and that is UK English, hence the s rather than the z. You’ll also see a lot of programmes rather than programs, etc., etc.
