    U.S.G's ICANN and ISOC Plan - Spread the $$ Around
    by Anonymous on Monday November 07 2005, @01:16PM (#16435)
    U.S.G's ICANN and ISOC Plan - Spread the $$ Around

    No ICANN reform is needed or planned.

    The U.S. Government plans to defuse the corrupt
    ICANN Regime, that followed from the Jon Postel
    era, with Vinton Cerf and Steve Crocker, Postel's
    cronies, running the show.

    The U.S. Government's plan is to start stirring
    the alphabet soup even more. ARIN spins off the
    NRO. The ISOC pulls in the IETF and starts
    spending .ORG tax dollars like water. Check out
    that IAOC. Add that to the IAB, the IESG, the
    IAHC and stir in some MOUs for seasoning.

    Any place that money starts to collect, the
    insiders clone some new sham company, staff it
    with insiders and distract people's attention
    in a new direction.

    The U.S. Government of course gets a piece of
    all of the action. Other governments are then
    run in circles, chasing their tails, attempting
    to keep track of all of the alphabet soup

    Insiders, like NeuStar, just stand around the
    Northern Virginia suburbs waiting for the next
    low-hanging fruit to appear. Check out that
    $2,000,000 secret contract[1] from the ISOC's IETF
    to NeuStar. No government over-sight needed,
    no bid, just private company to private company.
    All private, no GAC or UN or the public allowed.

    A brief overview of the IETF FY06 budget of $3.8 million will be presented at the Wednesday Plenary.
