Re: Who wants to be in charge of the Internet today?

At one of my old jobs, my boss honestly believed that we had a 'switch' that turned the entire internet off or on. When she was having problems accessing her shopping sites, she'd storm in the office and say something like 'did you guys turn the the internet off again?' <sigh>

Then again, this is the same person that tried to tell me that 768 OC-192s are carried on a single DS1..

I shudder to think what would happen under large scale attack if one of the CEOs in that room had "responsibility" for the correct functioning of the "Internet".

This definitely falls into the "Just Doesn't Get It" category.
