Many of you are concerned as am I about our friend who
has been hauled into court in London and unfairly
maligned for the “crime” of distributing some government
communications that he got from an anonymous source.
I know our friend also has been a bit playful out of wedlock,
and even had a son that way, but I don’t see what that
has to do with the matter at hand.
Into what companies will the fabricator of this iniquity hereafter go with
an unembarrassed face, or with any semblance of the honest intrepidity
Men will watch him with a jealous eye &em; they will hide their papers from him,
and lock up their escritoires.
Having hitherto aspired after fame by his writings,
he will henceforth esteem it a libel to be called
a man of letters…
RIPE-NCC is the oldest of the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs),
and RIPE is the deliberately unorganized association of interested parties
that meets twice a year and holds discussions online in between.
It’s a mix of operations, research,
Topics range from obscure details of deploying IPv6 to organizational
proposals such as what I was talking about.
430 people attended the meeting in Rome, which was quite a few more
than the dozen or two of the first RIPE meeting I went to many years ago.
Interesting questions were asked.
I may blog some of them.
