    .XXX is Alive and Well at NewStar - Dyson Was Paid
    by Anonymous on Saturday May 20 2006, @06:32AM (#16784)
    .XXX is Alive and Well at NewStar - Dyson Was Paid

    1. Neustar just bought Rodney Joffe's UltraDNS

    2. New.Net runs .XXX via UltraDNS

    3. Neustar is ICANN's Northern Virginia ISOC-Spook creation to compete with Verisign

    4. Neustar was placed at the head of all lines, ran illegal lotteries which were swept under the rug and now run .XXX as well as 30 other TLDs.

    5. ICANN had to choose between the .XXX that has digital DNA from Eugene Kashpureff (via Jason
    Hendeles the Donald Trump of Canada) or the .XXX
    with digital DNA from Jon Postel. Which .XXX do
    you think ICANN chose ?

    6. .WEB will be in the root real soon now. (.RSN)

    7. Pay no attention to Dyson's consulting gigs
    with NewStar, NeuStar, NeuLevel, New.Net, etc.

    This is a notice of intent to issue a sole-source, no-cost purchase order to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), 4676 Admiralty Way, Suite 330, Marina del Rey, CA 90292. The period of performance for this effort will be five years, with a one-year base period and four one-year options. The Government will award this purchase order on July 17, 2006..... This procurement is being conducted under the authority of 41 U.S.C. ? 253(c)(1)...which applies when the services required by the agency are only available from one responsible source and no other type of service will satisfy the agency's needs. ....
