A true, modern-day Gutenberg, Cerf is often referred to as the father of the Internet (logically, this makes the clean-shaven Bob Kahn its mother).  In May of 1974, Cerf co-authored A Protocol For  Packet  Network  Intercommunication, and the world, with all its cultures, economies and facial pursuits, was forever changed.  Though Cerf’s encyclopedia entry is undoubtedly littered with numerous honorary degrees and awards, perhaps none is more fitting than the title of Beard of Action.
