They are essential for the internet to function, yet completely transparent for “normal people”

yet when something happens – the fallout usually is is significant :)

so when facebook kinda removed themselves from the internet yesterday, I realized two things:

1 it’s aways DNS

2 I really dont care anymore

3 I do actually care

I don’t care for the problems of a multinational social network facilitating hate and abuse on a global scale

but I do care for the poor sods who have been tasked with running this networ, who have to clean up this mess now and probably have to endure hours and hours of executive whining for the coming weeks. Not even starting about the snark of the entire internet and all their competitors. I mean, the memes are actually brilliant 😇

You people have my compassion. Also:
