    Scripting News: “On this day in 1998, Jon Postel died.”

    Jon did a lot of good for the internet. For instance he was a central figure in the events that lead to the creation of ICANN.

    Coincidentally, I’m sitting in a boardroom in Marina del Rey two blocks up the road from where Jon kept his office. With me are members of the ICANN board of directors – Njeri Rionge, Raimundo Beca, Mike Palage, Vint Cerf, ICANN staff – their CEO Paul Twomey, and Denise Michel, representatives from ICANN’s supporting organizations and advisory committee’s – Bret Fausett, Marilyn Cade, Sharil Tarmizi. We’re talking about the future of ICANN and what kind of a strategic plan we’ll need in order to get there.

    Hopefully we’re in sync with where Jon would have wanted us to be.

    Thanks for everything Jon.

    "We’re talking about the future of ICANN"

    What future ?

    [head slap] Duh, that's right, the future where
    Vinton Cerf moves off-shore with Paul Twomey and
    counts the .NET per-domain Registry fees [taxes]
    as they enter their Swiss bank accounts ?

    Remember ? ICANN said they would not be a Registry.

    Remember ? Vinton Cerf's ISOC warned governments
    not to tax the Internet...until they got the
    first shot...[they left that second part out]

    The future where the new IANA - David Conrad,
    shows ICANN how to run the whole thing off-shore
    in the Seychelles like he ran one of Jon Postel's
    early franchises, called APNIC ?
