SDIs Give Akamai Nightmares

Check out the billboard run in the Miami airport all October. Turns out, SDIs have obsoleted CDNs, the bread-and-butter cash cow of Akamai. As Akamai's customers arrived in Miami at the annual EDGE conference, a billboard greeted 100% of them. Red claw marks on a black wall, with nothing but the words "We Give Akamai Nightmares . COM" as text. Yes, there is a practical use for SDIs, and it's going to significantly change the balance of power in the delivery of Internet content. My question: How the heck did Mr. Potts "grok" this reality from publicly available information? IMHO, a brilliant analysis of technological data exhaust.
