For Profit or Protection?

How do Walt Disney, Paul Allan and other Big Companies end up in a discussion of Kiddie Porn. Read and follow the “who’s who” of American Business that are profiting from Protecting our young.

You would think that tracking a name as famous as sports.espn.go.com would be easy so it kind of intrigued me when I ran into certified bullshit. I ran a tracert on the name and came up with an actual IP address of 198.105.192.66 and then on to dnsstuff.com to look up the owner of this address. It said it was a law firm that owned every address which ended between 192.0 and 199.255

Since every pair of IP addresses can host 50000 websites, thats hosting for 50 million small businesses or one heck of a big law firm. So next I went to cosida.com which is sponsored by ESPN and is the College Sports Information Directors of America and looked up Starwave in their directory. It reported the same address as the whois response and reported that there were no contacts for the organization.

A direct trip to starwave.com doesn’t tell much because its sort of a “hustle” site running a contest for a cell phone company. Now a trip to aboutus.org started to get interesting. It turns out that starwave.com is the “Producer of ABCNEWS.com, ESPN.com, NBA.com, NFL.com and other large sites.” The netsol.com whois directory reflects that this is part of DIG which is the Disney Internet Group.

If I hadn’t been run around the information highway in a recycled loop, I probably would have stopped. But instead I went to Wikipedia to find out the origins of Starwave. It seems that Starwave was founded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and aside from being the producers of the big name sites previously named, they were among the first to create the technical capability for multiplayer gaming. In our case, the technology would be needed to connect the two data mining machines to the data analyzer at go.com in a multiplayer game.

The ownership of go.com has cost Disney millions. They got sued by goto.com who was the actually payee on the money order I received in November 2000. It cost me $50 to frame (Garishly Gilded Gold) the debased $0.50 money order. However I was still right about the relationship. Goto was the original successful pay per position search engine. Disney had a look alike logo for go.com and lost a $21.5 million claim to goto.com. In a surprise move in May 15,2001, Disney replaced it’s own technology with the paid listing service from goto.com. Yahoo now owns Goto and Disney still uses the pay for position service.

It’s easy to imagine, the multiplayer game being established by Starwave with Goto tabulating the the pictures located by Americanthumbs and lolitacj.com where Disney makes a profit on both ends and naturally gets paid on a pay per dirty picture or a pay per predator isolated while doing a “Public Service”

Americanthumbs and lolitacj will be discussed separately.

Meanwhile, sports.espn.go.com no longer works at any level. Seems that it automatically redirects you to espn.go.com.
I wonder if Agent Carter’s old user name and password are still valid.
