07/20/99 RMIUG Meeting - Coming Changes in Internet Domain Registration and the Domain Name System

Please note that due to scheduling issues at NCAR, the July RMIUG meeting is the 3rd Tuesday (instead of 2nd) this month and is on July 20th

The Tuesday, July 20th meeting of the Rocky Mountain Internet Users Group (RMIUG) will feature have two speakers talking about Coming Changes in Internet Domain Registration and the Domain Name System (DNS).

- Carl Oppedahl (carl@oppedahl.com) is a partner with the intellectual property law firm of Oppedahl & Larson LLP in Frisco, Colorado. He has litigated Internet domain name trademark cases. His firm's web site is http://www.patents.com/.

Carl will talk about changes in top-level domains and the breakup of the NSI monopoly for registering COM, NET, and ORG domains. He will make recommendations on how domain name owners can minimize risk of loss of their domain ames.

- Cricket Liu (cricket@acmebw.com) is the co-author of both O'Reilly & Associates Nutshell Handbooks on the Domain Name System: "DNS and BIND", and "DNS on Windows NT." Cricket founded Acme Byte & Wire, which specializes in consulting and training on the Domain Name System.

He'll be talking about new features in the latest release of BIND (8.2.1) which includes support for incremental zone transfers, DNS Security Extensions, enhanced forwarding, and more.

Note that both speakers are recognized experts in these two areas ... and both have given excellent presentations to RMIUG before: Carl on Jan 13th, 1998 and Cricket on June 20th, 1995.

The meeting is Tuesday, July 20th from 7:00-9:00PM (with optional 6:30PM start for refreshments and informal networking). The meeting will be held at The National Center for Atmospheric Research at 1850 Table Mesa Drive in Boulder, which is located on the west end of Table Mesa Drive, up the hill, right under the Flatirons. For door-to-door driving direction, go to MapQuest (http://www.mapquest.com/ ), click on Driving Directions, enter your starting address, NCAR's address, and voila! Park in the NCAR lot, go in the main door, and ask the guard to point you to meeting, which is held in the main auditorium, right off the lobby. The meeting is free and open to the public, but we may pass the hat to help defray expenses. Our meeting location seats about 120 people. That is usually enough room to accommodate all attendees, but it's impossible for us to predict how many people will show up for any given meeting. Seating is always on a first-come, first serve basis, and in the event of more attendees than seats, we won't be able to admit additional people into the auditorium after all seats are filled.

RMIUG appreciates the ongoing support from XOR Network Engineering ( http://www.xor.com/ ) for administration of RMIUG's electronic discussion lists & WWW site. Thanks also to NDA ( http://www.nda.com/ ) for sponsorship of refreshments for our group.

Consultants and companies are invited to bring Internet-related product information, brochures, and business cards which will be displayed on an information table.
