I incorporated a good bit of the feedback I received and also brought in some newer numbers and statistics. Of note, I now have a section on WebRTC where I didn't before. You'll also notice a new emphasis in the title... I'm now talking about the potential winners versus the challengers. I also chose "Directory Dilemma" not only for the alliteration but also because the situation really isn't as much a "problem" as it is an overall "dilemma". It may or may not be a "problem".
I'm not done yet.
I'm still seeking feedback. I intend to do yet another revision of this piece, but in doing so intend to:
- Change it from the informal tone at the beginning to more of a "paper" style;
- Include a bit more about potential solutions.
Comments and feedback are definitely welcome... either as comments here on this site, on social media or as email to "email@example.com".
I'm not sure when I'll do that next iteration, but probably later this year.
Thanks in advance!
