Media query: ATM


Not to put too fine a point on it, but the nanog archives weren't really a
solution for me because I needed quotes from people on the ATM issue,
quotes that I could use in my story. Would you have preferred if I had
cribbed someone's old nanog post without their permission, which is what I
would have needed to do given the reality of news deadlines? I don't think
so. I also was seeking reaction to Mr. Feldman's comment, which the
archives would obviously not offer.

Unlike many of my colleagues in the computer trade press, I am rabid about
sourcing and accuracy. Thankfully, a number of people on the nanog list
were very helpful in this regard.
