Get out of the Cloud business, get out of anything but, the lobby business. Look at that deal in Washington State ! The CIX , totally focused on being a trade org. may very well have been able to do something about such actions. Alot of people agree that there is a real need for a good org. to represent the Internet providers. Waiting until June to talk about such matter in sunny Hawaii is a lifetime in this business. RBOC's fighting daily to get in to the LD business ,,, Sprint sure is heck is spending $$$ with all the right groups to make sure they come out with their fair share. So why should the internet be any different ? Bob, People don't trust the Cix. That could always change. Continue to block routes, run a router, talk of being an RA , Why not a focus on the Capital Hill area and forget the rest of the nonsense ? As for the router of last resort, I would say sell it to the highest bidder. Before you do, have all members sign it. After all alot of them have had their hands on it / in it. J stroup
