    I do think he works for the second place candidate anymore (NeuStar). I think we was let go.

    Just for the record, Neustar has a long-standing tradition of dubious employment relationships. Who can forget the whole Blokzijl fiasco? Neustar hired Eric for his knowledge of EPP and to lend credibility to their new registry endeavor. His name was attached to a lot of documentation, but he never left his home in Maine.

    So Eric is the perfect person to do Neustar's attacking, in a consulting role, while Ken Hansen publicly takes the high road. Neustar will fight tooth and nail to get .org because they need the revenue, and more importantly, the credibility. So E.B.W. is Neustar's man for taking pot shots at ISOC/Afilias.

    Now, lets turn the finger back at Neustar, has anyone really studied the Consolidated Balance Sheet submitted to ICANN with their proposal (http://www.neustar.biz/services/dot_org/images/50_1.gif)? They were quick to point out that they had $33M in cash as of 1/1/02, but didn't anyone notice that they had $32M in Accounts Payable and another $41M in "Other Liabilities." No matter how you slice it, those are not healthy numbers. And where did they come up with $45M in Net Intangibles in the Asset column. I would love to see the footnote on that.

    Additional considerations on Neustar: 1. With 250 employees, their payroll is conservatively $30M per year; and 2. Why do you think they operate under 4 separate DUNS numbers (2 as Neustar and 2 as Newstar)? And not one of them has a good credit rating.
