A simple solution for ARIN
In a recent discussion with one of the leaders
of ARIN, it occured to me that there is a simple
solution for ARIN.
Some of the ARIN Board members have control
of their own /8 CIDR allocations.
I suggest that all of the people interesting in
starting the private, non-profit, 501(c), IRS approved,
company named ARIN, take ONE of those /8
allocations and have at it.
If funding is needed, that group could consider
also selecting some new Top Level Domains to
use as a "funding source".
This proposal parallels the InterNIC model which
has been proven to work thanks to the prototype
developed by the National Science Foundation
and located in Virginia.
ARIN of course could be located anywhere and
would serve customers who want to deal with
the people who run ARIN.
