The fall ARIN meeting is just around the corner and that, of course, means it’s election time again.
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.
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.

As I reported in an […]

It started as a lunch time conversation and grew from there. The idea was spurred by last year’s attempt to enact […]
Yep, I have been nominated (again) as a potential candidate for the ARIN Advisory Council in this year’s election. I am extremely honored that other ARIN members think highly enough of me to put my name forward for this position. Thank you! I will wait until my candidacy becomes official before laying out my “platform” […]
Those of you tuned in to Internet policy are surely aware of the upcoming meeting of an ITU group on IPv6 that will be discussing WTSA Resolution 64 – IP address allocation and encouraging the deployment of IPv6. Unfortunately, I have been extremely busy with some other far less exciting projects and have not found […]
Ok, so I am about two weeks late posting this. No excuses for my tardiness (those will come in another post), just right down to it: I lost. Again. According to the results posted by ARIN back on 5 November, I came in 12th out of 17 candidates, with 94 votes. A huge THANK YOU […]
