    Jon Po$tel's Cronies Ca$h Out Again With Neu$tar

    Jon Po$tel's Cronies Ca$h Out Again With Neu$tar

    NeuStar is the Northern Virginia Spook-Tank with DOD funding roots from well-healed players such
    as Lockheed-Martin. NeuStar was moved to the head
    of the TLD line by Jon Postel's cronies during the
    Beauty Pageant years. NeuStar paid off people like
    Bill Manning and Dave Crocker to grease the process. Esther Dyson is a regular consultant
    feeding off the NeuStar rays.

    NeuStar came with ZERO experience and was granted
    a two-year head-start period to make sure they would not fail. Dozens of other applicants paid
    for their start-up and illegal lotteries and other
    scams helped to fund the company that was given
    one free pass after another by the U.S. Government.

    NeuStar was also handed Jon Postel's .US TLD under
    the table directly by the U.S. Government. Claims
    of a short-term contract and a re-bid of course
    were lies. ICANN was not needed to handle those
    inside-the-beltway deals.

    Now, with most of the secret deals handled behind
    closed doors and under the table, it should be
    no surprise that NeuStar has stepped forward to
    more openly pull in more of Jon Postel's cronies.
    Dave Farber's 25+ TLDs come with the UltraDNS
    deal. Dave Farber was Jon Postel's PhD thesis

    "NeuStar Inc. an essential communication services provider to the Internet and communications industry, revealed that it entered into a definitive merger deal to acquire Virginia-based UltraDNS Corp., a domain name systems - DNS provider for $61.8 million in cash.

    Jeff Ganek, Chairman and CEO, NeuStar said that the acquisition would enable the company to emerge as a stronger provider of essential services to the communications industry and looked forward to working with the UltraDNS team to seek interoperability solutions for the future.

    Rodney Joffe, Chief Technology Officer, UltraDNS said that the unique structure of the company provides customers nearly 100% uptime service with a fully redundant disaster recovery monitoring and failover service with DDoS protection."

    New.Net and .XXX also come with the NeuStar deal.

    .WEB is also now owned by NeuStar, via the UltraDNS deal.

    NeuStar also recently took over the IETF from the the ISOC and they get the .ORG IETF to pay them to run the IETF. It is now all the same money because NeuStar also gets .ORG as part of the UltraDNS deal.
