Google’s Free Public DNS

I know you’re a big fan of openDNS and I saw this article about Google free public DNS.http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/09/12/03/google_launches_free_public_dns.html

Maybe some would find it tragic that I actually got excited about this news. :-p

We do put OpenDNS‘s servers — 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220 — in everyone’s network configs, but I’ve always been a mite concerned that the service could shut down. I gotta assume there’s less chance of that with Google.

The reaction to Google DNS blogged by the founder of OpenDNS is brief but really instructive, and it allays my concern about their longevity. Also, he makes some good points about how their service is different.
