I think you mean that the clue density is getting sparser as the Internet grows. This is because clueful Internet engineers are often clueless when it comes to things like mentoring which would cause a more even clue distribution. And management does not put enough emphasis on knowledge transfer because they don't seem to have a clue about where Internet engineers come from. Since the thrice yearly NANOG meetings are a major source of clue transfer in the industry, I think that this is quite appropriate to discuss on the list. Should the NANOG meetings include a longer tutorial component prior to the two-day meeting? If NANOG offered weeklong courses prior to the meetings would your management sent engineers for training? Would your management allow clueful engineers to teach such courses? -- Michael Dillon - E-mail: email@example.com Check the website for my Internet World articles - http://www.memra.com
