[802SEC] 802 Milestone submission

Current state per Paul's request:

Title of the proposed milestone:

IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee, 1980

Plaque citation summarizing the achievement and its significance:

In February 1980, industry representatives first met in San Francisco, California, to standardize Local Area Networks (LANs) for computers. This led to creation of the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee, and three of its Working Groups (WGs) were particularly important in transforming the nature of computing: 802.3 (Ethernet), 802.5 (Token Ring), and 802.11 (Wi-Fi). These WGs created standards which made wired and wireless communication between computing devices an essential functionality.
