Hmmm. Who exactly is "The Internet Innovation Alliance"?

Unfortunately, their website does not say:

 http://www.internetinnovation.org/

But given the content there (generous references to the upcoming
Internet "exaflood" apocalypse), I would guess they are either
compromised of telcos and ISPs or telco lobbyists or both. :-)

It would be interesting to know (the rest of the story...)
