John Klensin

John Klensin was involved in the early procedural and definitional work for DNS administration and top-level domain definitions, and was part of the committee that worked out the transition of DNS-related responsibilities between USC-ISI and what became the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). In 1992, he and fellow Internet Hall of Fame inductee Randy Bush created the Network Startup Resource Center, which helped countries establish connections with FidoNet, UseNet and when possible the Internet.
