In the late 90s and early '00s, I worked for MAPS, 
(as a very junior person;  I was born in '80.)
More recently, I spent a few years at Yahoo in search.    
Between, I spent some time at smaller companies where I ended 
up being the 'dns expert' just 'cause I had experience and others 
did not.   I find that if I'm going to work for other people, 
I like being one of the less-knowledgeable members of the
team.  If I'm to be the "expert," it seems that I'd prefer to just 
run the company myself, even if that means less money.  

I have mostly been taking a break from DNS these last
few years.   I'm running a small VPS company, and my only current 
involvement with dns is dealing with my own RDNS and running a 
dns secondary for the isipp whitelist.  At some point I'm going 
to get around to implementing a global load balancing system
that relies on http redirects rather than inconsistent DNS
answers, but I've got quite a bit of learning between my current
dns/network setup and the multicast DNS and robust network
that I will need.
