*Whenever* there is public funding of *any* activity, an AUP is attached to
oulaw the misuse of taxpayer money. Internet II is not exempt.

I see in today's SF Chronicle that Cisco is one of the promoters
of the Internet-II project along with Stanford, other universities
and companies. Perhaps you could start by convincing Cisco mgmt
and save cisco shareholders' money.

Would it be impolite to point out that if a $100M R&D effort would
create the technology for a 2-3 order of magnitude speed-up, that the
private sector would be falling all over themselves right this second
to make it happen?

Unrelated but see above the support of Cisco, Sprint etc.

The same article quoted someone at EFF that there is no need
for a new Internet as the current one can be made faster by using
cable modems. Hmmm..
