I believe the error is in Paul Vixie's Wikipedia page, and I don't
do Wikipedia editing so I won't be fixing it.

  "In 1988, while employed by DEC, he started working on the popular
   internet domain name server BIND, of which he was the primary author and
   architect, until release 8."

ISC has spent some effort on properly documenting the history of
BIND, and the result of that effort is located at:

You'll note there are two full paragraphs and a dozen folks involved
before Paul had anything to do with BIND.

ISC is always interested in updating the history if folks have any
additional information.  Feel free to e-mail me if you think you have
something important to add.
