Submission + - Remembering John Postel (jacquesmattheij.com)

KDan writes: "John Postel made significant contributions many of the key protocols and RFCs that power the internet (IP, TCP, etc). Of particular relevance today was his stance against US government control of the top-level domains: John Postel transfered the DNS root authority to non-governmental servers, but was overruled by Ira Magaziner, Clinton's science adviser, and forced to reverse the change.

In the current circumstances, this blog post is particularly relevant."
