[arin-ppml] POC privacy

Good story aside, some people may not appreciate the fact that any anonymous person on earth can track them down, especially the pizza guy had no business in the network.

I take this story as indication that the current system is lacking concern for privacy.

So here's a problem for you, you know the address where someone is and he's not answering his phone. How do you get a message to him right away? Michael went on Yelp and looked for a pizza place near the house and called them up and said, "I want to have a pizza delivered.  But never mind the pizza. Just send a delivery guy over and say these four words: The site is down." The pizza place was very confused by this, but they send the pizza guy without a pizza, Kyle answers the door, and the pizza guy says, "The site is down." Kyle was able to fix it, and the site was down for less than an hour total from beginning to end.

Wow... PIZZA-GRAM... that's a great story!  (And you typed in on an
iPhone - I don't have the patience!)

I've been known to jump through hoops once or twice to track down
someone at some domain or network, but Michael Siebel has taken it to
the next level.  I am seriously impressed!  I'll have to remember this
one.  I suspect it'll work with Chinese take-out as well??   ;^)

I hope Kyle got a pizza out of the deal anyway?
