Agreed, but it is pretty clear that serious communication/image/respect/etc challenges remain. That is why the current IAB took a step, albeit a small step, towards trying to change that by opening up the communication channels a bit. As I seem to become fond of saying, "its a first step, but you have to start somewhere". I'm hoping (and pushing) that we keep moving in this direction. As always, we can all educate each other a bit, and some of that happened at the NANOG BOF. However, much more is needed. To that end, I've applied for a slot at APRICOT for the IAB so we can keep what momentum we gained from the NANOG BOF going. Finally, if folks have suggestions as to how to make these (communication) channels more useful, work better, etc (including suggestions for issues you'd like to talk to the IAB about or hear the IAB talk about), please let me know.
