billn Re:Sites to Blacklist (286 comments)

llnwd.net is a CDN. You *can* block it if you like, but you'll be blocking a lot of other things, like Netflix, Amazon Prime videos, Sony DLC, and all manner of Internet content.

Why the Olympics Didn't Melt the Internet

billn Re:Most of the world can't watch... (383 comments)

Disclaimer: I work for Limelight.

Limelight hat on -
The reason for this actually extends all the way to the Olympics committee and how they choose to license the broadcasting of events to each particular country. NBC does not have license to provide this content outside the US. That requirement propagates to every edge of their service offering. It's unfortunate, but that's the reality of it.

Limelight hat off -
Given the scope of NBC's offering, and how well it's all gone off, I would hope that what was done this year set's the bar for future events, and offers a new dimension to including the entire world. This event was a real kick in the pants to work on, and the ramifications it has for live content over the internet is staggering. Until Congress fucks up net neutrality.
