Just curious. I don't think there was ever anything formal. I imagine a few folks could dig around and come up with their personal notes. Although as I think about it, I kind of remember the Merit folks videotaping at least one of the meetings in the north campus union building - but that was a large number of all nighters ago so who knows how faulty my recollection might be. (It was well before MBone days which started at the San Diego IETF I think). >After reading these notes, we've come a *long* way. Well, the meetings are certainly quite a bit larger now - like an order of magnitude. (but that's slower growth than the Internet). Some of the challenges are the same, they just take a different form. We were certainly much more cooperative - not that there weren't regular disagreements, but we certainly had a stronger sense of shared fate since there wasn't overlap in geographical coverage (typically) and we were facing pretty much the same issues across the board. dave
