                  Setting up DNS Masqerading 
                                                 by Jerry Stutte

dnsmasq is a lightweight DNS, TFTP and DHCP server.  It is intended
to provide coupled DNS and DHCP service to a LAN.  Dnsmasq accepts
DNS queries and either answers them from a small, local, cache or
forwards them to a real, recursive, DNS server.  It loads the contents of
/etc/hosts so that local hostnames which do not appear in the global DNS
can be resolved and also answers DNS queries for DHCP configured hosts.

Jerry Stutte has worked in molecular biololgy and bio informatics.

          GNU

Angry over the commercialized state of software development, 
Richard Stallman announced the creation of the UNIX-compatible GNU
operating system in several Usenet channels.  His message read, "Starting
this Thanksgiving I am going to write a complete UNIX-compatible software
system called GNU (for Gnu's Not UNIX) and give it away free to everyone
who can use it.  Contributions of time, money, programs and equipments
are greatly needed."

Who Is Behind The Internet?
Patrick J. Crowley, Ph.D.
Assoc. Prof. of Computer Science and Engineering, Wash U.


Given its central role in global communications and commerce, it
is natural to wonder: who is responsible for the Internet?  Who keeps it
operating, fixes it when it breaks, arbitrates disputes, enforces laws,
and funds its growth?  To explore these questions, we will discuss the
uniquely collaborative and distributed nature of the Internet, along
with some of the aspects of its history and operation that help explain
why timely issues such as network neutrality manage to be both highly
contentious and commonly misunderstood.


      This is a free event, but seating is limited and there are no
      reservations.
