The quote, for those struggling with browsers and paywalls. I was able
to see it in a Tor browser:
Before becoming the dominant networking protocol, Ethernet was
challenged by several other technologies. In the early 1980s, Mr.
Metcalfe said, when Mr. Boggs took the stage at a California
computing conference, at the San Jose Convention Center, to discuss
the future of networking, a rival technologist questioned the
mathematical theory behind Ethernet, telling Mr. Boggs that it would
never work with large numbers of machines.
His response was unequivocal. “Seems Ethernet does not work in
theory,” he said, “only in practice.”
A keeper indeed.
