Or, like Daniel mentioned, you could focus on those where you
stand a chance of peering.  Note that traffic requirements mean
the more you peer with little guys, the harder it will be to peer
with their upstreams.

Pick a strategy and run with it.  Being a broadband provider in
SE Canada, I suggest sniffing out public peering in NYC and CHI
for a start.  IIRC, Hotmail and Y! are at AADS and will peer with
most anyone -- there's a good chunk of traffic.  Now Akamaize
your network if you haven't already.

It's fun to talk about infrastructure, but there comes a time
where you draw the line, deciding what is real and what isn't...
