A monk I met on the street, however, said: "Even stupid companies can make
smart decisions sometimes, the trouble is that you can only tell in hindsight
whether the choices made were the right ones".
I was also given a copy of a book by Lao Tze before the monk was
chased off by aggressive chanters and bongo-drummers from a rival sect.
Central London is weird.
I think in business they should rather be reading Sun Tzu.
Either one may or may not be applicable. Depends on your view.
"When the country is ruled with a light hand
The people are simple.
When the country is ruled with severity,
The people are cunning."
So, I will be cunning in light of this severity. ;)
"... the stiff and unbending is the disciple of death.
The gentle and yielding is the disciple of life.
Thus an army without flexibility never wins a battle.
A tree that is unbending is easily broken.
The hard and strong will fall.
The soft and weak will overcome."

I think it makes more sense in terms of building a quality network.
But then, I don't make money selling high-bandwidth ip transit, so
perhaps this is just my view of the peering elephant.
