Attention to sidebar on page 192 of the Columbia Accident
Investigation Board report entitled "Engineering by Viewgraphs":
Regarding the original question about journals, I have found the Internet
Protocol Journal to be helpful. Yes, it is published by Cisco, but it has
an academic approach and the editorial board is all non-Cisco and includes
luminaries such as Vint Cerf. A frequent contributor is Geoff Huston, whom
I admire a lot.
Don't confuse the Internet Protocol Journal with Packet magazine, also from
Cisco. Packet is definitely marketing driven, whereas IPJ is more
research-oriented. More on IPJ here:
I'd be interesting in hearing what you all think of IPJ.
