Everyone who knew Ian Peter is saddened by his loss, however it is cheering
to recall his enthusiastic spirit, well evident in the two clips here.

*Janna Anderson <https://www.linkedin.com/in/jannaanderson/>* Of Elon
University writes:

Ian has been an outstanding leader in the evolution of the Internet from
the 1980s to today. Those who never had the opportunity to meet him missed
the chance to fully appreciate his kindness, dedication and sharp
intellect. This wonderfully charming and bright Aussie was a key figure in
the Internet’s early development and diffusion in the Asia-Pacific area. He
was one of the original founding directors of the Association for
Progressive Communications, the outstanding international network of
organizations that has been and continues to do work that is crucial to the
advancement of the Internet as a tool for the advancement of human rights
via human communication.

We will always remember Ian for his passionate pursuit of the best possible
future of global communication.
