IT Compass

During a meeting, the terms "north" and "south" popped up again while discussing network zoning and DMZ. North is the "outside", typically the Internet. South are the internal, trusted systems.

How would IT people in South-Africa think about this, where the north is "hot" and very south Antarctica cold? Maybe also good fit: freezing in the data center, hot and dangerous on the Internet.
