    IBM Re:AT&T Exposed as a Co-Conspirator
    by Anonymous on Monday July 12 2004, @05:10AM (#13926)
    IBM is the real Co-Conspirator pulling the strings
    from behind the scenes.

    Herb Schorr (USC/ISI/IANA) comes from IBM.
    For years Herb Schorr's name was on the NSF
    funding supported the IANA dictator Jon Postel.


    John Patrick (IBM) was one of the main GIP manipulators that created ICANN.

    Esther Dyson was of course funded by IBM and
    even appeared in national TV commercials for
    IBM as some sort of Internet Guru. Four years
    ago, Dyson, Lou Gerstner (IBM), Cerf and other
    insiders were PRE-ANNOUNCING their Summit with
    the newly elected President of the United States
    of America. There were two interesting aspects
    of the announcement. One: They implied they would
    be granted such a Summit meeting PRIOR to the
    General Election. Apparently Al Gore (the
    Inventor of the Internet) had OKed the meeting.
    Two: The Summit was scheduled in Early December
    PRIOR to the meeting the Electoral College. The
    insiders did not seem to care that the Electoral
    College vote determines the winner. They had
    their Summit scheduled and thought they had
    bought their candidate's victory.

    Roger Cochetti (now V$) was of course an IBM
    Washington D.C. lobbyist prior to helping to
    create ICANN and then jumping over to V$ to
    reap the rewards of the .COM and .NET monopoly.
    Cochetti is a regular at all of the insider

    The list goes on and on.
