Wow Randy, you really misunderstand the situation in Europe and the 
reasons behind the horizon expansions, and I'm surprised by your 
advocacy of American hegemony in a market where that really doesn't 
exist (those of independent not-for-profit internet exchanges).

If only you worked for a company that allowed you input into the 
decision processes of all these member-driven associations!
