Intelesting. Perhaps for the next nanog meeting a delay of say,
30 minutes could be introducted between the end of a presentation
and the beer-n-gear session coupled with the beer-n-gear being shut
to prevent trinket rush-hour?
On another nanog side-note, congrats to the people running the
external realmedia feed this meeting. I was watching it from out
here in Amsterdam and the stream was flawless. Besides the
obvious camera refocus, etc. :-)
