Colbert on AT&T

When I was growing up, AT&T was affectionately (or disparagingly, depending on your point of view) called "Ma Bell." Over the past several years, it has been interesting to see the court-supervised breakup of Ma Bell into the "Baby Bells", followed progressively by recombination of several of these entitites, along with some new business units, into the "new" AT&T. Perhaps Stephen Colbert explains it best in this video from http://schomer.vox.com/:

Note 1: Sorry, but this video seems to have disappeared from cyberspace. I'm still looking. Perhaps AT&T didn't like the publicity! :)

Note 2: I found a YouTube link that seems to work. However embedding has been disabled "by request."

About

Discovering Identity was founded on blogs.sun.com in May 2005 as a means of documenting my exploration of the field of Identity and Access Management. In February, 2010, I switched to hosting the blog at DiscoveringIdentity.com. In March 2012, I began posting Oracle-related information in both places.

Thanks for stopping by.
