I would argue that I am not an "abnormal" household by any definition other than
my internet access and that even by that definition, I am not particularly abnormal
where I live.
your based out of san jose, there might not be any other area like
that in the U.S. as far as connectivity and concentration of i.t.
savy. there might be 10 cities in the U.S. with the same
infrastructure and availability as you have accessible. there are not
50. while not abnormal where you live, it is abnormal to the rest of
There are many people I know of with much more expensive and elaborate
internet connectivity to their houses than what I have within 30 miles of me.
While I don't think I represent the typical residential ISP customer, I do think that
the typical customer will eventually learn what static addressing is and will want
it for a variety of reasons.
scott's user base is more typical than what you can find in your
neighborhood. i am sure some of the same users live within 30 miles
of you too but you,i, scott, or anybody else on this list can not be
considered normal in this respect.
