This sniping elicited by the above seems inappropriate and
unprofessional, the request/anecdote seemed reasonable and could
elicit solutions such as partnerships, etc.
No Barry, I respectfully disagree. It's almost 2012. The first predictions of
IPv4 exhaustion were made *last century*. We've been predicting it to the
month level for like 5 years now. Any business that is making business plans
and models that doesn't take "we may not get IPv4 space" into account and have
a contingency plan for that *deserves* to be soundly mocked and ridiculed in
You could take this one step further and say any industry that has had this much warning and hasn’t taken it into
account *deserves* to be soundly mocked and ridiculed in public.
