RE: Routescience?

I would like to hear it too.  However, in fairness to Routescience,
did anyone on NANOG previously ask Cisco and Juniper to publicly
talk about everything they (sometimes painfully) learned about 
how to create resilient IS-IS/OSPF/BGP implementations?  And even 
if anyone would ask, are Cisco and Juniper likely to respond 
(thereby giving a heads up to their competitors)?

Routescience may or may not have something worthwhile.  However,
I would respect their perogative to not say much more on the 
NANOG mailing list.

I think the presentation at NANOG would be a great idea, especially
if it is a joint presentation with an ISP evaluating the product.
