Hi there...

I'm in a meeting next week to discuss settlement-free peering etc.....
always an interesting time.  A push is on (by myself) to get into other
physical locations and participate on the peering exchanges.

Besides costs, what other factors are benefits to peering?

I can think of some but looking to develop a concrete list of appealing
reasons etc. such as:

-control over routing between networks
-security aspect (being able to filter/verify routes to some degree)

Just looking for other positive ideas etc...;)
