geeting NANOG listed in Encyclopedia of Associations

NANOG has no official spokesperson (unless someone wants Merit to take
on that role with the public media) and produces no documents. NANOG
is a forum for providers to discuss and hopefully resolve operational
issues, but not a policy making body. NANOG has never written any
formal decree. IMO: If NANOG starts to try to produce documents,
discussion would quickly deteriorate from network operations to petty
wording in the documents.

The IETF would be more appropriate (if IETF is not already in there)
as well as the IETF WGs such as CIDRD, allowing the chair to serve as
spokesperson for the WG, hopefully providing draft documents and
status of WG documents and any official WG adgenda, but not any
personal agenda for the WG.

Do we really expect popular media to query IETF Operational Area WGs
on their progress and their impact on the Internet? I doubt it.
