Interesting article Cees - a quote from it:

"However, breaking free of the phone number is going to require several different industries to get together and design a secure noncommercial mobile identity standard that can connect any device on the planet in milliseconds, and global standards-setting discussions are tedious, fractious, and ripe for abuse."

Phase 2 of .tel deals with just about every issue raised in the article - yet no mention of .tel at all !

Articles like these emerge all the time, which is great, because they validate both the need and concept behind .tel. It's just frustrating that it isn't on the radar of tech writers, so never gets mentioned.

It happened just a few days ago, in the New York Times:

"Business Cards Go Paperless, or Almost" - http://nyti.ms/kMRazf

It even quoted Erick Schonfeld (editor at TechCrunch), who apparently uses an app called Hashable.

Tech writers are preoccupied with gadgets and apps - they tend to look at things from the perspective of a consumer, i.e. their readers. They're not equipped to do much more than regurgitate press releases about stuff they're already comfortable with, or peak over Apple/Facebook's garden wall. Tech is no different to any other form of journalism, and if anything it's probably in an even worse state.

At the end of the day .tel will succeed in spite of this, and then those writers will suddenly start sounding like experts on the subject. It's their job.
