About

Much of Jay’s knowledge about the Internet is a result of a company he formed in 1997 called Iperdome, Inc.  But what started out as a typical Internet venture, soon turned into a world-wide process to establish Internet Governance.  As one of its most active participants, Jay testified in front of Congress, served on the IFWP Steering Committee (process resulting in ICANN), and provided Internet Governance consulting to Network Solutions.

ICANN vs. the Federal Reserve

After years of support and supervision, the U.S. Government is about to irrevocably relinquish its control over the Internet by transferring its authority to an independent corporation named ICANN. As part of this push, the current chairman of ICANN posted this article to the Wall Street Journal... What's truly amazing about this piece, is how well it's done... It was only after digesting this piece, that I remembered we are talking about ICANN here. more

The Illusion of Internet Governance

There's been a lot of controversy over the U.S. Government's proposal to give up their supervisory role over ICANN. This lead Karl Auerbach, one of the only people ever elected to represent end-users in cyberspace, to write this letter to Congress. Karl did an excellent job as North America's first elected representative in cyberspace. He fought for things that would have made Internet governance more representative, and more transparent. more
