Rather than sit back and complain about the results, why not try to
synchronize meeting times. Not necessarily hotels, but within a reasonable
distance of each other so the issue about ROI for the trip can be mitigated.
The IETF apparently has some major scheduling problems as it is, because there
are very few venues that can handle the number of people that show up *and*
have the right mix of large rooms and many smaller break-out rooms. Trying to get
it into a hotel opposite a NANOG would just exacerbate the problem.
And there's nothing stopping NANOG types from joining an IETF working group and
participating via e-mail - there's a large number of people who have contributed
to the IETF process and never actually been sighted at an IETF meeting.
