I’ll be in St. Louis, MO for the beginning of next week and would love to meet up with some of you.
Sunday, Monday and Tuesday I will be attending NANOG 38. NANOG is the North American Network Operators Group and is a great place to stay current with cool stuff in the systems, networking and operations fields. The meeting also coincides with ARIN‘s meeting. ARIN, if you don’t already know, is the group that manages IP address allocations and assignments for North America. It manages the policy that its members (ISPs and networks mostly) fall under when requesting and managing IP space. It’s a great group that masterfully handles what seems like an easy task but is actually quite complicated.
If you want to try and meet while I’m in town just shoot me an email or reply below. I’ll be staying at the Knight Center at my Alma Mater, Washington University in St. Louis (also a NANOG sponsor). It’s not far from where the conference is and it keeps me near Clayton and University City, two of my favorite St. Louis neighborhoods. 🙂
