The White Paper is out, as predicted, the U.S. Government *punted*
the ball. They should have never picked up the ball if they did not intend
to do anything useful with it. About all they have done is delayed the market
place for a year, allowed the NSF to slip out the back door (while the
Director of the NSF moves to the White House), and wasted everyone's
time and money, including U.S. taxpayers that paid to fly these people
around the world.

One does not have to be a rocket scientist to see that you will have
no ability to influence the new IANA Inc. If you think you do, then I suggest
you follow the leads below and I wish you the best of luck. Just remember,
follow the money...it tells the whole story. Oh, and by the way...I suggest
that you add up how much each of the various people have been paid since
1995 to help shape Internet Governance and who they have been paid by...
that tells the whole story...look at the salaries of these "non-profit" prophets.

I will continue to lead VOLUNTEERS in the creation of 8 new Top Level Domains.
They will be named, G0, G1, G2, G3, G4, G5, G6, and G7. Second-level
names below each of those will be S0, S1, S2, ..., S254, S255. We will
continue to work with the various RSCs to get these 8 TLDs listed. Also
we will work with the Grass Roots people to get them listed. Hopefully,
the entire effort will be 100% volunteers. In other words, this will truely
be non-profit because it will be non-revenue and spear-headed by people
who do not earn their living doing this volunteer work, that only occurs on
the Internet, and not in smoke-filled rooms in Washington, D.C.


I wish everyone luck that wants to follow the money. It is a natural human
attraction and will provide you with a nice life at the expense of others. I
suggest that people refer all of those interested in huge profits and multi-level
marketing opportunities to the new private IANA Inc. The pyramid continues
to be built using U.S. taxpayers money. As someone once told me, if you
"play ball" with them, they will make you a millionaire. They are proud of the
millionaires they have created and will no doubt be now turning them out in
volume with the U.S. Government's blessing....all non-profit (non-tax) of course...

P.S. The NSF will be helping to start the entire mess all over again. If you
