Jim designed and built the DNS backbone of the Philips intranet, one of the biggest networks in the world.

Nominum: Based in the Silicon Valley, Nominum, Inc. is the world leader in development and support of Internet naming and address management solutions. Virtually all internetworking software, including electronic mail, files transfer and web browsers depend upon Domain Name System (DNS) software. The DNS implementation known as Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is by far the most commonly used domain name server on the Internet and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is the most widely used open source server software for the automated assignment of IP addresses. Nominum writes both of these applications to the standards as defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). The BIND and DHCP software is freely available as open source via the Internet Software Consortium's website: http://www.isc.org/.
