Give me a break. This list becoming "less useful"?!
Alert the press! (or maybe not, according to you)

Traditionally, there has been a real knowledge gap between 
technology journalists and network operators. This has the negative 
effect of mainstream media presenting incorrect and/or skewed 
information regarding not only technical issues, but larger industry 
issues (including things like l3/cogent).

Without clued contacts, journalists are forced to glean their 
information from sources like vendor press releases and sales 

Is that how you'd like the public's window into the industry 
colored? Do you really think that VendorSpeak really needs any more
