Keeping The Web Alive
Who knew that Vint Cerf, a father of the Internet,
dabbles in poetry? Cerf, who co-wrote the original
Internet protocol that started it all, has been
writing poems about technology and the Web for years.
Now, in addition to books on the history of
cyberspace, he says he wants to write a book of puns
and jokes with a working title of Rhyme and
Punishment. Alas, that will have to take a back seat
for now to Cerf's efforts to preserve his beloved
ICANN, responsible for doling out domain names.
Founded six years ago this month, ICANN has been
criticized for trying to exercise too much power over
the free-spirited Web. Moreover, it's battling to meet
some tough financial deadlines by Dec. 31, 2004.

Choosing the Best Domain Name
"What is in a name? A rose by any other word would
smell as sweet." It is obvious that William
Shakespeare knew nothing about the world of Web
hosting, by those lines found in Romeo and Juliet.
