Oh look, the allocation to IPNIC today set off the IPv4 endgame provisions! Now to watch another problem unfold because we (as a culture) spent the last several decades focusing on short term profits instead of investing in infrastructure. We may have lagging communications infrastructure, a desperately eroded manufacturing base, and a whole heap of other stupid (not to mention our ludicrously inefficient healthcare stemming from the same “Why pay now when I can pay more later” attitude) , but at least we aren’t socialists, right?…Goddamnitsomuch.
Next up: Peak Oil (unless it already happened.. oh right, it probably did).
Once men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free. But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.— Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam (Frank Herbert)
