I recently attended RIPE 66 where Tore Anderson presented his suggested policy change 2013-03, “No Need – Post-Depletion Reality Adjustment and Cleanup.” In his presentation, Tore suggested that this policy proposal was primarily aimed at removing the requirement to complete the form(s) used to document need. There was a significant amount of discussion around bureaucracy, […]
With the Autumnal Equinox behind us, fall is in the air and that means we are nearing the next ARIN PPM: ARIN XXX! It will be held 24-26 October 2012 in Dallas, TX. Of course an impending ARIN Public Policy Meeting means that it’s time for me to provide a policy update, so, here it is! […]
Since I’m starting to speak more publicly and more often, I thought I’d throw out a schedule so that folks will know where I’ll be. So, to kick that off, here is my next 3 months of speaking engagements: LACNIC XVI / LACNOG 2011 / Internet ON 3 to 7 October 2011 Buenos Aires, Argentina […]
[UPDATE 27-SEP-2011: Draft Policy ARIN-2010-14 has been implemented in ARIN NRPM 2011.4!] Well, I am a little late bringing this notice here but better that then never I guess… On 15 February 2011 the ARIN Board of Trustees adopted the following policy: Draft Policy ARIN-2010-14: Standardize IP Reassignment Registration Requirements https://www.arin.net/policy/proposals/2010_14.html This policy will be […]
I just sat in on a call/talk/presentation by Leo Vegoda (the guy who operates the IANA for ICANN) on IPv6. Overall, it was a great primer on IPv6, the exhaustion of IPv4 and the future of Internet addressing. One idea that I would especially like to echo here is his suggestion for everyone to send […]
Here we go again! As what might be my last act as a “regular” member of the ARIN community, I have decided to launch a discussion petition of ARIN-prop-125, Efficient Utilization of IPv4 Requires Dual-Stack.
In the second half of 2010 the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) started sending emails to all Points Of Contact (POCs) registered in the ARIN Whois database. Since then, I have been seeing more and more chatter about these emails – including increased traffic here on my blog. Because I am at least partially […]
The ITU Plenipotentiary Conference 2010 (PP-10) recently concluded. The conference took place in Guadalajara, Mexico from Monday the 4th to Friday the 22nd of October, 2010. Many in the Internet community have long expected that this conference would focus heavily on what the ITU often calls ICT (Information and Communication Technology), what most of us […]
I am humbled and honored to be selected to serve on the AC at this key time in the Internet’s history. In less than a year (likely far less), we will run out of free/unallocated IPv4 addresses. This will (and already is) bring many challenges to bear for all of us, perhaps especially for those committed to providing stewardship for the Internet. I salute everyone willing to take on that burden and am extremely grateful that you selected me to continue my work in this area as a member of the AC.
