Ira Magaziner, who has served as President Clinton's senior policy advisor on Internet issues for the past six years, has informed White House officials he will resign shortly, a spokesman for Magaziner said today.

The departure of Magaziner, who spearheaded the Clinton administration's efforts on e-commerce, privatisation of the domain name registration system and online privacy, leaves questions about who will succeed him.
