Mr. Scott Bradner, Harvard Extension School professor and former ARIN, IETF, and Internet Society Trustee is widely recognized as one of the few first-person historians on the creation and development of the Internet.

ICANN published the Sunrise Period for Google’s latest new gTLD .APP, which opens for registrations beginning on March 29, 2018.
