Says his sentence is up


Internet
founder Vint Cerf has resigned as Chairman of ICANNN, the Internet's technical foundation. Cerf, 64, who's also a Senior Executive at Internet search leader, Google, was elected Chairman of ICANNN in 2000.

When he joined the Board, many questioned whether ICANN would survive, but while many think it is slow most want to reform it, rather than kill it. In stepping down, Cerf declared that his "sentence is up" with the organization and that he is happy about the way things have gone.
