Playing domain name hide-and-seek

Dan Goodin
6/30/1999 08:10 AM,4,84-38576,00.html?

The entry of a new player in the registration of the most popular forms of
Internet addresses is creating confusion about how to tell whether a given
domain name is still available, and if not, who owns it.

Back when Network Solutions was the only game in town, the task of
establishing domain ownership involved a simple trip to the company's
database, which showed the creation date, contacts, and other information
for every domain name ending in ".com," ".net," and ".org."

But now that has begun selling domains under a shared
registration system, NSI's Whois is no longer the authoritative place to
find out whether a domain name has been taken.

When inquiring about a domain name sold by, NSI's database
simply displays the message: "No match for [domain name]." The process
could become even more complicated within the next few months, when more
than three dozen additional domain registrars are scheduled to come

To provide information about all domain names, NSI in April established
NSI Registry, which contains a listing of every domain name registered in
the ".com," ".net," and ".org" space. The new database does not provide
contact information for a domain name, but it does list where the address
was registered so the user can get the information from that registrar's
Whois page.

The confusion has sparked a new round of complaints among NSI critics, who
say the Herndon, Virginia, company did not do enough to simplify the
or give the public prior notice about how the database would work after came on board.

"People are registering with and not getting updated into
NSI's Whois," said Paul Garrin, founder of Name.Space, which accused NSI
violating antitrust laws in a 1997 lawsuit that recently was dismissed.
"This is causing problems."

Specifically, Garrin said, his company and dozens of others use programs
that automatically connect to NSI's Whois to determine whether a domain
name is taken. The programs interpret a response that there is no match
a given domain name as meaning that the address is still available. With offering domain names, that frequently is not the case.

But NSI spokesman Brian O'Shaughnessy said the new Whois site was
in an April 2 press release. As more registrars come online in the coming
months, he said, "each of them will maintain their own registration

Subject: Mark Amerika's PHON:E:ME web project

(Please excuse us if you've received this message more than once.)

June 30, 1999



It's DJ electronica meets Fireside Theater meets Marcel Duchamp.
--Mark Amerika

Novelist, Web publisher, and net artist Mark Amerika, Founding Director of
the Alt-X Online Publishing Network, has created PHON:E:ME, a new Web
project, commissioned by the Walker Art Center's Gallery 9. PHON:E:ME asks
viewer-participants to expand traditional notions of authorship and
narrative and invites them to "re:mix" their own textual-auditory
experience over the Web. The project launches June 30 at

Amerika, using the m.o. "surf, sample, manipulate," remixes sounds and
texts to create an original composition that blurs the borders between
spoken, written, and sculpted artistic forms. Part oral narrative, part
experimental sound collage, and part written hypertext, PHON:E:ME also
addresses the new possibilities of both conceptual and performance art in
network culture.

The sound works associated with PHON:E:ME were developed with
sound artist Erik Belgum and composed with a specially programmed speech
synthesizer that uses the artist's own voice. This tailor-made synthesizer
was created by sampling the artist's voice as he speaks all of the
of the English language as well as mimics other electronica sounds, such
drum kits and bass lines. Additional sound and interface design were
developed by Anne Burdick, DJ Reset, Cam Merton, and Tom Bland.

Joe Tabbi, editor of Electronic Book Review, who contributes an essay
"Amerika, Ink" to the project, writes of Amerika's earlier, critically
acclaimed GRAMMATRON project: "What distinguishes Mark's project, its
to priority as a work of imagination, is that it stands as the first
substantial literary work created to exist on the Web."

According to Amerika, "With PHON:E:ME  the emphasis is on sound-writing,
with hypermediated text . . . and very little attention placed on imagery
per se," adding "I've always thought of writing as filtering, in the
mediumistic sense. Writer as techno-shaman: filtering the white noise
exploding in his skull and digitally editing it all into some on-the-fly

Amerika is the author of two novels, The Kafka Chronicles and Sexual
The Philadelphia Inquirer has said: "the real counterculture is not gone
and Mark Amerika is proof of that . . . his work is not so much a book as
it is a Dadaist demonstration, once again honoring the dictum that it's
artist's sacred duty to destroy what commerce has made common." His
GRAMMATRON project ( was developed while he was
Creative Writing Fellow and Lecturer on Network Publishing and Hypertext
Brown University. Released in June 1997, it is one of the most widely
accessed art sites on the World Wide Web. He is also the creator of
Hypertextual Consciousness, a breakthrough study in electronic writing and
publishing. Amerika frequently gives lectures, performances, and
demonstrations on Web publishing, hypertext fiction and theory, avant-pop
literature, and the future of narrative art in network culture.

PHON:E:ME was commissioned by the Walker Art Center's Gallery 9 with
additional support from the Australia Council for the Art's New Media
the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, and the Jerome Foundation.

The Walker Art Center is located one block off Highway I-94 at the corner
of Lyndale Avenue South and Vineland Place in Minneapolis. For public

United Art Space


Press Release

United Art Space is a new non-localized art space, acting from Internet.
offers not only to broadcast artist works on Web,
on cdRom, but also to product with them some works as specificity of this
virtual space are. U.A.S. wishes to take in
consideration technical and technological data, and multiple exchanges
situations, as well as the multimedia games universe, in
order to be a data base for the artists whose thought concerns media,
information spreading and Net system.

The founders of U.A.S., Jean-Marc Avrilla and Valery Grancher, wish to
develop this reflection through productions and
publishing of works. This thought try to show that it is not only
to present the works of the artists, but also that
personalities from different horizons must be brought to collaborate
together. This collaboration fits with the principle of
working on Internet, in the essence.

This project is only possible in elaborating, with artists, multimedia
designers - in a large meaning - and programmers, a
platform for reflection and production. The specificity of U.A.S. pages is
its double identity : place of research and space of
broadcast. So U.A.S. defines three objectives : first, the production of
specific works, allowing to bring together the world of
contemporary art to the world of multimedia ; Second, in the broadcast of
these works, in participating of art fairs or events,
permitting to open to a largest public ; Third, a management service of
works, from their production to their preservation,
for public or private collections.

But U.A.S is also a place for debate :  on line  seminars will be
regularly proposed with themes connected to the program
and the fundamental reflection on the medium. A magazine will propose
interviews with artists, theoretical articles or fictions.
Finally, the site pages of the artists shown will be accessible from
by a link, presented in U.A.S. pages by a temporary
providing, in order to study or interrogate works, datas proposed for each

CASABO-Univers Hommes sponsors United Art Space.

4th and 5th 1999.

the artists of the first exhibitions are : Jack Pierson (USA) and Radio

Jack Pierson

Jack Pierson photographs the world around him : the most often the
non-conformist american universe, holiday world,
"farniente", where the male body take an essential place. He photographs
through hot color clichs - snapshot of personal
souvenirs - through sculptures of words that erect the feelings like
buildings, or through movies where the subject is draw in real

The set of his work is in keeping with an intimist concern like the most
known American artist NanGoldin, David Armstrong or
Mark Morrisroe. He have developed for a lot of years fashion photographs
published in magazine like Harpers Bazaar, Purple

Jack Pierson, born in 1960, lives and works in New York. His most

computer-graphic designer, Dj, he leads the label QOR
Recordings. He was more particularly involved in the techno department of
the Nirvanet website and in the artistic program of
the Cyber Theater in Brussels.

The work "Surf Music III" is the third part of the set whose the two first
chapters was presented at the Documenta X in Kassel.
This 60 mn work is conceived like a musical piece that will be diffused in
