NANOG 13 Logistics Update

Interstingly enough, there was a recommendation at one point to have
DHCP address assignment free, but charge $3 for a piece of paper with
a static IP address.

Then someone else suggested a competitive market model was needed,
with multiple static-IP-address-on-paper vendors to allow the market
to produce the most efficient paper static address producers. A
fraction of the $3/address would then go into an allocation fund.
This allocation fund (until congress gets involved) would be then be
used to lower the cost of cookies at NANOG.


Great. So ARIN will eventually be getting involved with IP assignments
at NANOG too, eh? :slight_smile:
