The Godfather? Really? Okay, so the guy who is just so fucking brilliant he figured out you could take multiple channels and combine them to offer more bandwidth? That's his contribution?
I'm not saying this isn't useful, or important.
But suggesting its a particularly brilliant innovation? I'd personally suggest it isn't even enough of an innovation to be patentable. Yes, I know somebody probably patented it. But there are lots of REALLY REALLY smart people out there inventing really really amazing things. This just isn't one of them.
It says he was part of the original specification which I read as being one of the original people behind the entire line of DOCSIS standards. So it was more than just the channel bonding but the entire way of communicating on the channel in the first place. Also, DOCSIS 3.0 in itself is more than just channel bonding.

which was his original public contribution (from
the lancity days); If you are doing anything with
Cable you probably owe him more than you realize for
pushing CableLabs and the industry to innovate on
