Domain interruptus is edging towards a solution. The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), the administrator of the naming sytstem, and Network Solutions, inc (NSI), which registers the names, finally released yesterday jointly agreed bylaws and articles of incorporation for a new corporation. It is the intention that these documents, with only minor drafting improvements being permitted at this stage, will be sent to Ira Magaziner, Clinton's advisor in the matter, before by the 30 September deadline when NSI's contract expires. Hundreds of people and organisations have contributed comment, including the International Forum on the [US government] White Paper, in Geneva at the end of July. The new changes in yesterday's draft are directed at improving openness, and establishing some form of membership and electoral process. There will be a board of nine members, and nine additional at-large members. There will be some provision to obtain a geographical balance. Yesterday, the National Science Foundation ceded its authority over the Internet to the US Department of Commerce in a move to make the transition to private-sector management easier. ®
