On my bookshelf too.

I believe this was more of a "technical reports" series 
than a referreed journal since it contained only work 
being done by the one organization. A lot of universities 
and research labs also publish a "technical reports" series 
that describes work whichj may or may not make its way into 
journals and conference proceedings.

Would it be better to think of a way that NANOG could publish 
a series of NANOG Technical Reports rather than a journal? 
This seems to be the ideal way to formalize work that is 
supposed to focus on the here and now by describing stuff 
that is operationally useful no more than 6 months into the 
future.

Then we would have an archive of NANOG presentations,
associated NANOG Technical Reports and the occasional
pointer to a journal paper when the author takes their
work to that stage.
