@Home was allocated most of the space in 24.X.X.X
directly by Jon Postel. This was at a time when Paul
Mockapetris had recently moved from USC/ISI to
@Home. @Home had no customers and the justification
for the allocation was something about @Home having
big plans and a lot of venture capital.

Since that time, cable TV companies have lined up
to be allocated various blocks in the 24.X.X.X space.
Below is a recent listing. It is difficult to check if they
are all cable TV companies, but many of the names
seem to indicate this.

Maybe you take exception to the usage of the term
"registry", and do not compare this operation to the
APNIC registry which you operate. From an ISP's
point of view, the result is the same. Companies are
being allocated blocks of IP addresses and anyone
that is involved in the allocations is a registry or part
of the registry industry.

Why don't you describe your view of the history of
these allocations, and how these allocations are made.
That might help people founding NAIR and ARIN and
other "registries" to use the terms that you prefer.
