Polder Pioneers – Teus Hagen – The first European data networks




In 2013 the Internet Society Teus Hagen took on in the Internet Hall of Fame. He was thus – together with Kees Negger – the first Dutchman who was assigned this honor. Hagen was the late seventies and early eighties particularly active in the Unix community and founded among others the Dutch and European Unix Systems User Groups on.

The latter user group consulted with the European Unix Network or EUnet the first data lines through Europe, based on Unix-to-Unix Copy. Later in the eighties Hagen was closely involved in the creation and management of NLnet, the first Dutch ISP.
