RE: Semi-on-topic: Light that travels faster than the speed of light?

Well, I would imagine that the faster you can ship the bits,
the faster anything can happen -- including BGP convergence and
botnet attacks (too!). :slight_smile:

Yeah, I realize that the possibility to actually "speed up"
light via the optical transmission systems may be a long
ways off (or simply impossible in practicality!), but I
thought this was interesting.

To make this operational, will this speed up BGP convergence?

(note that there is a difference between group velocity
and phase velocity. The posters of "300,000 Kilometers Per
Second. It's Not Just a Good Idea, It's the Law!" are still
