Re: protocols that don't meet the need...

[Hm, what happened last night that I missed]A thought I had on the plane last night about the disconnect between the NANOG and IETF community which leaves protocol development to run open-loop.
I rather thought today's talk (last one in morning) by Randy Bush might have been pushed you to write this ...
Rather than sit back and complain about the results, why not try to synchronize meeting times. Not necessarily hotels, but within a reasonable distance of each other so the issue about ROI for the trip can be mitigated.
You mean like NANOG and IETF both having meeting in Dallas?
Its difficult enough to make it for one week for conference. Taking two weeks off for two conferences is too much to ask for must of us I think.This will mean that people who regularly attend both will have overlap issues
I think better way is to have at least one track (from 2nd part of day) at NANOG devoted to IETF related issues. New BOFs that happen at IETF can be, but if one meeting every year or two is joint there is an opportunity for those who can't justify the extra trips to at least have some feedback to try and close the loop on protocol design.
repeated at NANOG plus people from IETF might discuss current milestones
and direction for workgroup of interest to those at NANOG.
