Edge Cases Are Real
I just had to switch servers, one that has a lot of parked domains. That meant going to three different registrars (I know I have to consolidate) and entering the new IP address in place of the old one. Why haven’t we created another level to DNS that lets this just be a matter of changing a constant in one place.
I feel his pain … and I know where the solution lies … it’s called #CustomerTech – some might know it as #VRM – it’s an initiative that Dave’s good buddy Doc Searls has been driving for the past ten years.
Companies like Digi.me and JLinc are at the vanguard of this thinking … apps for people to manage vendors.
I mean if we can have a single financial app to manage our banks, brokers and bonds – surely it is way easier to have a single app that manages our DNS servers? I guess the problem is that people that need to manage DNS servers are edge cases to begin with … but multiple registrars to manage their multiple DNS servers … that sounds like it’s the ‘edge of the edge’.
It’s An Epidemic
I wrote about my recent experiences with Comcast last week. Turns out, that as I was engaging with Comcast, Doc Searls was engaging with Dish Network. And just as I was writing …
Comcast could make this happen in an instance. It is called process. They know when their services are down, they just try to deny it with delay tactics.
I mostly feel sorry for the people that have to deal with me and the like – they know the truth. Keep up the good work folks – we know it is not you.
Doc was writing …
My experience with the agent was fine. She did a good job.
…and once again – we are down to corporations processes …
Or did they sell their customer’s phone numbers?
Or maybe the completion of the Yahoo acquisition has triggered something?
Whatever it is – until today I had never received a single piece of spam as text through my phone … and maybe one spam phone call every couple of months.
Today, I have received 7 spam texts and 5 spam phone calls … and we still are only half way through the day.
What’s up with that?
Make Sure Everyone Knows
Curiously, some of the people I think SHOULD be supportive of Net Neutrality are not …
Just Amongst The Dave’s
Here’s Dave Winer on why he thinks Net neutrality is an issue for a set of big companies relative to another set. Users don’t have a reason to support one …
… I don’t agree, but there are other views – Dave Weinberger on why he thinks Net neutrality still matters. A lot.
He’s Still Got It
I know this has been out for a while – but – well it is a long story. Suffice to say, been spinning it for a couple of days now. Awesome. No review here – there’s plenty around. But I do have an observation. Roger’s lyrics – and specifically his ‘lyrical lists’.
