The great bulk of the world, especially management types, gets their technical news with a 4 to 6 month time delay from glossy technical magazines. This delay is due to the time required for writers to reasearch and write as well as the time required for the setup and the presswork. For an example of what I mean, pick up the latest copy of Internet World and read through the news pieces. If this kind of thing *IS* seriously contemplated, you have to push the startup of it out at least 6 months and then start writing some serious press releases to distribute to all the major technical media as well as traditional media. I think the magnitude of the problem deserves some press conferences as well. When the media are bombarded by press releases from Merit, NANOG, Sprint, ANS and so on, they will sit up, take notice, ask questions and report to the world what you want to do and why it is neccessary. Then when the technical guru says to his boss, "We have to renumber all 300 machines in the office by next month end". The boss will understand why and the renumbering will actually get done.
