don't take your IP address for granted

January3

Estimates vary widely but some credible sources think we could run out of new IP addresses as early as this February.

Go ahead and try to sleep now. I dare you.

Historically, every gizmo – PC, networked printer, IP telephone – that communicates with other gizmos over a computer network has been assigned its own, unique number (something like 172.17.60.22) called an IP address.  That identifying number is how the InterWeb knows to display this blog post on your laptop, and not on your colleague’s iPad.

Don’t panic.  This does not mean that your iPhone will stop accepting texts sometime late this winter or that you won’t be able to buy any more shiny Internet-enabled gadgets.  Network engineers are smart folk and they have foreseen this inevitability for years.  In fact, the new addressing protocol, called IPv6 (don’t ask about IPv5) was standardized way back in 1998 and allows for 2128 addresses.  That’s an unimaginably big number.  In fact, it’s enough to assign a unique Internet address to every single atom on the planet according to this web site, which provides some other amusing comparisons.

Heads-up… Keep an eye out for what Bob Twitchell and hearty and ferocious band of engineers are doing over at Dispersive Network Technologies. Sharzing is naught less than bad-ass, and wicked-cool.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

…not what you were thinking

December28

The fact is most opportunities are not corollary to the obvious.

Ten years will come-and-go quickly. It already has, and it will do so, again. And, along the way, Apple’s stock could well hit one thousand dollars ($1,000.00). You can take my word for it. But, here is additional insight.

As Galvin makes his case, Apple’s revenues may triple in the next ten years. So, the stock could indeed hit $1000. But, the real play is not so obvious, and will likely be in the form of fiber optics – because that is what is needed to pipe the content. But, Data Centers will have their role as well. And, dudes like Bob Twitchell (big smarty pants genius that he is) will help lead the way with emerging technology that makes relative technology faster, more secure, and less costly.

Reactionary investment strategy like reading news briefs off MSN and Yahoo! will kill you. Whereas proactive research will build wealth. So… read between the lines from cross-referenced information. Think in terms of convergence. For example, “Apple”, “Video Anywhere”, “Fiber Optics”, “Data Centers”, and “Venture Capital”.

Follow the money BEFORE the thundering herds sort it out.

It’s about foundational thinking and strategy – relative technologies that make for great strategic partnerships. One element of the formula building off of another.

Now you owe me.

Soon… More insight into being a physical bad-ass at fifty, and great Margarita tips.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
