I have gotten some interest in this, and I'd like to propose that we
meet at breakfast-time on Wednesday (tomorrow).  Salon III is available,
so you can grab breakfast and then head in there and we can have an
informal BoF there.  I realize it's going to be a bit early, but I'd
prefer not to take us away from the rest of the program and tracks.

It does mean that you may want to limit your boozing at tonight's
Terremark social on the riverboat.  However, that still opens up all of
Wednesday to attend the DNS or Peering tracks and still tie one on at
Wednesday night's Equinix/Netflix social. :)

Here's my start at the agenda:

1. Sustainable R&E community collaboration in the limited Joint Techs era.

2. Where to have side-meetings like NetGurus?

3. Technical stuff: How are R&E folks doing interior routing/IGP (I have
been getting comments/questions about this since my talk).

Other stuff you can think of?  Again, you can email me directly and I'll
put things together for tomorrow.
