CAIDA is hosting a BGP workshop on april 7th in san diego, ca

can we assume that the five day notice is intended to prevent busy folk from
attending?

can we assume that the five day notice is intended to prevent busy folk from

no, that's what the mbone transmission is for

(altho admittedly mbone quality this week might
convince even busy/interested people
to take a quick jaunt down to temporarily
sunny southern CA -- )

the five-day notice lacked any intentional stance
of its own

timing of workshop to help baptize the new SD-NAP
located at SDSC. we assume this NAP will initially
be primarily of regional (local peering)
and cooperative research interest
so did send out paper invitations to local ISPs
[stage dir: k holds 3 fingers up and pulls them
down one by one counting down till randy asks
how k defines 'local'...]

No, randy... they did it just to piss you off.

Cheers,

I wouldn't be too bothered by the timing issues, since it probably isn't
a "workshop" in the sense that you are thinking. We'll (myself and Dave
Meyer) be providing a technical overview of BGP and mBGP, and probably
get into a few discussions on specific implementation problem/solution
discussions. That doesn't mean, of course, that we wouldn't love to have
some operationally experienced folks there to help answer hard questions. :slight_smile:
