Appendix. More About the Internet.

This appendix contains, for example, information about Internet account 
and domain providers.

A.1.	Internet, UUCP, and Usenet Providers.

There is not a bright line separating domain providers and account 
providers. In general, domain providers sell Internet links to 
organizations, account providers sell e-mail accounts to individuals. 
However, the services offered by each are constantly changing. The 
following are the major commercial Internet, UUCP, and Usenet providers.

About the Author

Erik J. Heels has been writing about law and technology since 1992 (when 
The Legal List was first released) and is starting his second decade on 
the Internet. His first started when he entered the Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology in 1984. He graduated from MIT in 1988 with a 
degree in electrical engineering. In the years following MIT, he spent 
four years as a United States Air Force officer and worked for various 
high-tech firms in the Route 128 region of Boston. His interest in law 
and technology led him to the University of Maine School of Law in 
Portland, Maine, from where he graduated (early) in December 1994. 
Before entering the Air Force, Erik spent some time working as an 
engineer in Finland. While in Finland, he met Pirjo, whom he married 
three years later. He now works for Lawyers Cooperative Publishing out 
of their offices at Counterpoint Publishing in Cambridge, MA, where he 
is an Internet Systems Architect. Erik and Pirjo and their one-year-old 
son, Samuel, now live in Eliot, Maine.
