    ICANN Director Moves IETF Into Marketing Spin
    by Anonymous on Monday May 16 2005, @11:22PM (#15272)
    ICANN Director, John Klensin, a long-time
    confidante of Vinton Cerf and an ex-MCI player
    has decided to begin using the ISOC/IETF to
    spread more distractions and marketing spin.[1]

    While it is interesting to see that the frogs
    are apparently aware they are being boiled, it
    is also interesting to see that they either do
    not want to understand where the heat is **really** coming
    from or they want to distract the other frogs
    from understanding that. In Klensin's latest
    pontification from THE Society, he fails to come
    close to explaining that the IP address spectrum
    is being migrated AWAY from his society's
    unethical stewardship to responsible carriers
    and government regulators [like the FCC].
    He also fails to note that during the migration
    the address spectrum is being expanded, which
    helps to accelerate the migration and remove the
    time-pressures and address-exhaustion FUD that
    ICANN and the RIRs use to lock in their customer
    bases.

    As the Internet has evolved, many types of arrangements have been
    advertised and sold as "Internet connectivity". Because these may
    differ significantly in the capabilities they offer, the range of
    options, and the lack of any standard terminology, the effort to
    distinguish between these services has caused considerable consumer
    confusion. This document provides a list of terms and definitions
    that may be helpful to providers, consumers, and, potentially,
    regulators in clarifying the type and character of services being
    offered.
