Well, what I would like to build is another good reason to go to the 
conference.  BOFs aren't sufficient by themselves.  Our networking team will 
often go to I2, and the NetGurus meeting is on the last day.  It is a full day. 
 And one day often isn't enough to squeeze in everything.  The one hour BOFs 
are better than nothing, but really go too quickly.  If we ended up getting rid 
of the tiny sessions and went for one bigger longer session, I think it would 
be beneficial.  Probably too late now, but I still want to know who is 
interested.  Educause tracks are very hit or miss, and I don't think I'd have 
any problem using a half day to meet with other colleagues.

A half day would be difficult.  There are scheduled CG meetings for 
Wireless-LAN and NETMAN.  Granted they are only ~an hour.  Over on the NETMAN 
side, we did manage to move our session to the end of the day Thursday, so 
conversations can continue beyond the scheduled time.  I'd encourage you to 
attend.

In the past few years there has been a Community Room at the Annual Conference. 
 Last year, we (the NETMAN CG) scheduled a couple informal discussions.  I'll 
be doing the same this year once I touch base with the other leaders from this 
CG, NETMAN and possibly Security.

If you have specific topics you'd like to discuss, let me know.  I also go 
through the hot topics from the previous year and put that list together for 
the NETMAN session.

All:

I don't know if I can pull this off on short notice, but I would love to see if 
we can somehow arrange a half day meeting at Anaheim to have a discussion on 
current networking topics.  I am trying to transplant what they have at the 
Internet 2 Tech Exchange with Net Gurus to Educause.  I don't even know if it 
is feasible.  But before I start the work, can those of you attending the 
educause conference please send me your contact details, when you plan on being 
there, and if you would consider slicing out half a day for some discussion?  I 
figure I need at least 15 solid 'yes' emails before I put much effort into 
anything.

Thanks!
