The guy is seriously out of touch with reality.  He seems to be
completely unable to comprehend the fact that packet loss is
not a malfunction but rather the nature's way to say "you need
more bandwidth".  And the fact that it was exactly suits who
got Internet to that point; engineers keet screaming about
inadequate facilities for as long as i could remember.

And if he thinks backbone engineers have time to prepare slides
(or have secretaries to do that for them) i'd like to move to the
world he's living in.
