He served on the first IETF Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG) as the Applications Area Director. Under his direction on the IESG, Internet standards were developed for multimedia email (MIME), real-time protocols to support applications such as desktop conferencing and some of the framework for what has become the World Wide Web. During his term on the IESG, the IESG developed the Internet Standards Process. Russ worked with the group that started the series of meetings and workshops that lead to the creation of the Internet2 Project. He participated in the formal creation of Internet2 and co-authored the Internet2 Architecture and Engineering documents. He has continued to work closely with the Internet2 Project and is currently on assignment to Internet2 from his home campus UC Davis to help with Working Group procedures and to assist the Engineering Area. He has helped lead California's part of Internet2 through his role in the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) and it's CalREN-2 network. CENIC is a consortium of the UC System, the CSU System, Caltech, Stanford and USC. The first project of CENIC is the CalREN-2 network, which provides high-speed network connectivity between member institutions and to the Internet2 national backbones.
