Quote about DNS

November 7, 2009

From here :

What DNS is not is a mapping service or a mechanism for delivering policy-based information. DNS was designed to express facts, not policies. Because it works so well and is ubiquitous, however, it’s all too common for entrepreneurs to see it as a greenfield opportunity.

One of the best parts of this article is that describes the way people try to take advantage of something that is was designed with a different state of mind. As a result the designers come back and try to change this design to deal with this “new era”. This leads to complicating things, making harder to set up a system working correctly .. and things eventually will break. If it stopped here, it would be ok, but unfortunately a new round of messing, trying to fix things, messing again , and so on will start.

Coming to the internet .. near you.
