	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

	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
