It definitely started at 9:30, and it was very short.

Boring actually.  But that's the way it should have been.  Not like this was a surprise.  Even the reporter from ZDNet asked "since we gave out the last 2 to APNIC last week, why is this day important?"  If ZDNet gets it, NANOG (actually *NOG) members should as well.

That said, I guess just like when any long time friend leaves us, we should have a ceremony to mark the passing.
