As you may have seen from the NANOG 24 agenda, I'm running two NAP
sessions at the coming meeting.
In the General Session, there is a NAP update, from a handful of NAPs.
We've had to keep this session small, and tightly timed, to fit well into
On the Monday evening, we'll have a NAP BoF session, which will I'm
planning on being fairly free-form, but will consist of:
* an "open-mic" for operators who didn't participate in the general
session to introduce themselves and their IX/NAP.
* a chance to carry out further discussion of any "hot topics" from the
general session - I've even asked for a whiteboard/flipchart.
* a place where participants get the opportunity to meet and chat with the
operators of the NAPs where they participate now, or may be participating
in the future.
* We'll probably head toward the bar at some point too...
Why have we chosen to split it up like this? Well, in Europe, at the RIPE
meeting, there is an open European IXP working-group for which we get 3
hours of agenda time. Not all the IXPs show up, and still we are
hard-pressed to fit things in the schedule!
So, if there are any NAP/IX operators who would be interested in coming
along to the evening BoF, drop me a mail, or you're free to just turn up
on the night. Of course, we would also like plenty of NAP participants to
show up too! It will also be a good chance to meet with potential new
peers as well...
See you in Miami!
