On a related topic: I am guessing that this is the first allocation
given to @Home by the InterNIC. I wonder how @home influenced
the NIC's "slow start" procedure and acquired a /14 when the first
allocation for every other ISP is /22 through /19.

What works for a company that does not (yet) have a single customer ?
Marketing hype, an ambitious business plan, impressive VC lineup,
media hype or the presense of a highly respected routing expert ?
I would like to know how we can "buy" addresses.
