external issues in dns scalability (1995) (was Re: Namespaces)

In 1995, Brian Kahin invited a bunch of folks to come to DC and talk about DNS ("a policy wonk's dream"). Not understanding that the whole thing was a sham, I wrote a paper and presented it. The audience (hi Vint!) reacted in stunned silence, and probably had a good laugh about it later at the bar. I found the postscript files and converted them to PDF and put them online: http://www.vix.com/~vixie/bad-dns-paper.pdf http://www.vix.com/~vixie/bad-dns-slides.pdf All I can really say is: "I told y'all so." Vadim, thanks for reminding me that there was a time when these problems were still soluble.
