Another Done Deal
Here is the latest monopoly being launched by the NSF
and the U.S. Government...of course, this one is probably
supported by the IAHC supporters. I suppose all monopolies
are not bad, just the ones they do not support.
Amendment 7 to the NSF Cooperative Agreement is now available. This
Amendment will transfer responsibility for the IP Number assignment,
Autonomous System Number assignment, and IN-ADDR.ARPA tasks to
the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN). ARIN will begin
operations on December 22, 1997. All IP requests received by the InterNIC
that are not processed prior to the close of business on Friday, December
19, will be forwarded from the InterNIC to ARIN. The InterNIC will make
every attempt to complete all requests received by this date.
"IN-ADDR.ARPA tasks to ARIN."
And ARIN was not supposed to have anything to do with
domain names....is IN-ADDR.ARPA a domain name ???
