I can, but my name isn't randy bush :) Actually what I was thinking was:
ISP's business depends upon their (and others actually) network working
properly, for them large scale 'internet killer' outages are not a good
thing. They employee (larger ISP's atleast) folks to think about this
problem and plan reaction to it.... even plan preventitive measures for it
Oh, and atleast the US and UK Gov'ts are interested in 'infrastructure',
though often their interest ends with the phrase: "Someone should make a
law..." at which point the ISP person(s) say: "And I'll move my <insert
bad thing that needs regulation now> off to the Cayman
Islands/Russia/China where your 'law' doesn't matter... so lets make this
solution not about the 'law' so much as making people realize it's the
best thing to do."
So, how isn't it being addressed?
