Brian Ackerman is his full name, and there is no sign of any physical
addresses. His email address is email@example.com (and he is the technical
contact for the WHOIS of nycrc).
Upon sending email to his account, it gets bounced:
"I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.
Sorry, I couldn't find any host named nycrc.net. (#5.1.2)"
It seems that no other email address would work on the nycrc.net domain (I
even tried firstname.lastname@example.org - the administrative contact, and that
produced a bounced message too.)
