nic.nz gets spamcopped...

Hmm. It looks like we're not the only domain company thats been spamcopped recently...

Businessweek picked up our end of the story this week as well.

I've said it before, I'll say it again - SpamCop is being irresponsible. Sooner or later someone is going to pick a fight with SpamCop that they won't be able to win.

Towards a simplified Basic Reference Model

At IETF-49 Rich Shockey and I had an epiphany about the OSI Reference Model. The idea we had was that the original OSI model had largely been supplanted by a slightly modified de facto stack that included two additional layers for a total of nine. We felt that there was a much easier rationalization of these nine layers that would be of tremendous benefit to the community. Shortly after the meeting, I uploaded a diagram that illustrates the the basic idea pretty succinctly.

For some reason, it hasn't caught on like wildfire, but it should be shared nonetheless.
