Its simple, get out of the routing business.  Get out of the Cloud 
business, get out of anything but, the lobby business.  Look at that deal 
in Washington State !  The CIX , totally focused on being a trade org. 
may very well have been able to do something about such actions.  Alot of 
people agree that there is a real need for a good org. to represent the 
Internet providers.  Waiting until June to talk about such matter in 
sunny Hawaii is a lifetime in this business.  RBOC's fighting daily to 
get in to the LD business ,,, Sprint sure is heck is spending $$$ with 
all the right groups to make sure they come out with their fair share.  
So why should the internet be any different ?


People don't trust the Cix.  That could always change.  Continue to block 
routes, run a router, talk of being an RA , Why not a focus on the 
Capital Hill area and forget the rest of the nonsense ?

As for the router of last resort, I would say sell it to the highest 
bidder. Before you do, have all members sign it. After all alot of them 
have had their hands on it / in it.
