What I forgot to add, however, is that unlike Facebook, we aren't a 
major content provider. So we don't have a need to parallel our DNS 
resiliency with our service resiliency, in terms of 3rd party 
infrastructure. If our network were to melt, we'll already be getting it 
from our eyeballs.

If we had content of note that was useful to, say, a handful-billion 
people around the world, we'd give some thought - however complex - to 
having critical services running on 3rd party infrastructure.
