As the network person, I don't really see any benefit in joining internet2, though I would see a benefit in possibly peering with them at Equinix Ashburn, since according to their looking glass they have a more direct connection to several AS'es than we do. On Sun, Oct 13, 2013 at 5:49 AM,

From http://www.internet2.edu/about/ I see that they are also focused on research. From that, I got the impression that like us, they are committed to the accessibility of knowledge. They state on their website that without them, many college researchers may not be able to get the information

Sneakernets are not particularly convenient. If the organizations of the net wanted to use that for data transfer, the net wouldn't exist. But I still think Wikimedia could increase/streamline accessibility to its information. It probably couldn't happen, but they have more than enough capacity
