Eugene Kashpureff operates an alternative domain name registry without the blessing of IANA. AlterNic.net offers domain names with new TLDs such as .nic, .tour and .xxx, as well as the "real" virtual world. The renegade domain registry, went online in March 1996 promising to "treat you better and charge you less," and takes a hands-off policy on name disputes, advising name registrants that they are not granted any "legal rights" to their domain names. A self-described "webslinger and bitsmith," Kashpureff was a hardware support manager for AT&T Microsystems in the early 1980s. He ran a towing company that began with a software design project for Seattle Central Towing in 1985. He also ran a "wooden puzzle manufacturing and retail operation" for two years before entering the towing business full time. By January 1994, he owned his own towing company. Kashpureff naturally took to the Internet, establishing a home page for his company, creating online tow operator safety courses for the Washington Tow Truck Association and crafting the YelloWWWeb Pages. Having deserted one monopoly in his unconventional career, Kashpureff was not pleased with Network Solutions Inc.'s dominance of domain name registration services. Kashpureff launched an experimental DNS service and domain name registry, dubbed AlterNic. Over the weekend of July 19 and 20, Kashpureff sent messages around the network that effectively redirected people searching for the site of Network Solutions_the official InterNIC domain name registrar to Kashpureff's site. He posted a message of protest about the tactics used by Network Solutions and a button that would take the users directly to Network Solution's real home page.

NYSERNet was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization that built and ran the Internet in New York State. Dr. Mandelbaum is currently President and CEO of AppliedTheory Communications, Inc., a corporation established as an affiliate of NYSERNet, to deliver web management services, intraneting, Internet and web applications training and Internet access to the corporate world. Mandelbaum served as director of the Center for Advanced Technology in Telecommunications (CATT) at Polytechnic University from 1992 - 1996, and served at the University of Rochester from 1977 - 1992, first as professor of mathematics and then as vice provost for computing and telecommunications. At the CATT, Dr. Mandelbaum coordinated research on telecommunications topics, including network security, broadband networking, and wireless communications. He also initiated CATT partnerships with industry and especially with the banking community, in the areas of check imaging, electronic checks and use of the Internet for commercial and financial transactions. As a result of this work, he was asked to join the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC), a consortium of major banks and technology organizations whose goal is to enhance the competitiveness of the U.S. financial services industry. At the University of Rochester, in addition to his internationally-published research in pure mathematics, he ran the computing and telecommunications services and infrastructure for all research and administrative programs. During those years, Dr. Mandelbaum continued to head NYSERNet as it repeatedly set the standard for Internet technology and delivery. He steered NYSERNet through a succession of "firsts": NYSERNet was the first NSF-funded network to use TCP/IP--the first standard messaging rules (protocols) upon which the Internet is based; the first to help develop and deploy SNMP---a simple message format that manages networks; and the first user of X.500--a standard directory service that stores individual's names and e-mail addresses. He also orchestrated NYSERNet's management of the National Network Testbed (NNT), a program funded by the U.S. Department of Defense.
