Re: protocols that don't meet the need...

        So, NANOG has worked in the past (eg: ARIN) at joint
meetings at a venue before, perhaps something similar would work.

        I find it interesting that NANOG and IETF are both in Dallas
about a month from each other and both parties likely navigated
the logistics issues of connectivity, etc.. for these hotels for
a slightly overlapping audience.

        Do people think something like the NANOG-ARIN would work for
NANOG-IETF?  That might allow cross-breeding/ROI/whatnot and value to
both communities.

I agree that attendance is not required, but it can help some discussions. 

Given the logistical differences it would be much easier to schedule NANOG
into a nearby hotel than to try to move the IETF around. For example this
time if NANOG had been a month later it would have been in the same city yet
different hotels. I understand that synchronized meetings it not trivial,
but it is worth considering.

The IETF apparently has some major scheduling problems as it is, because
are very few venues that can handle the number of people that show up
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
to the IETF process and never actually been sighted at an IETF meeting.
