Hi<br><br>I was thinking the same thing, it's been a while since we've had something like an aussie-isp or *nog style event, so I was wondering if it's worth putting effort into this list or forming an independent / neutral group. Kudos to the Bevan & PIPE guys for being supportive of the Australian ISP community. Moving on the assumption that this is going to be a neutral list -
<br><br>I'm thinking of potential an event later this year:<br>- 1 or 2 day event<br>- REAL technical sessions - (bgp/mpls/te/qos/isis/nix lockdown/dsl/wireless) <br>- industry stuff, (peering, ULL loving)<br>- panels and discussions
<br>- party / drinks / networking and more drinks.<br><br>something along the lines of the last aussie-isp session we had what 8 years ago? if this is what someone is having planned for ausnog-1, i'm in :) i'll also volunteer to help plan it.

I guess this is my cue to speak.<br><br>At the recent Asia Pacific Information Technology Security Conference<br>(AUSCERT2007) a short and small BoF was held. Thanks to Auscert for<br>providing the room, time, and drinks. Also thanks to some international
<br>participants who have experienced other 'nogs from inception to where<br>they are now.<br><br>Before I go further, APNIC is a neutral body in this and we take the<br>view that where possible we will attempt to support the formation of
<br>any networking related organisation that has a grounded view of open<br>discussion on internet networking related issues in a professional<br>manner. eg APNIC supports APRICOT, SANOG, PACNOG and a raft of other<br>'nogs and forums in various ways.
<br><br>I also think that Bevan and the PIPE guys need some recognition for<br>establishing the list, and website - but mainly for remaining fiercely<br>neutral.<br><br>At the BoF it was suggested to send an email to the list and see how
<br>many would be interested in attending an initial one day AUSNOG<br>conference (perhaps at the tail end of AUSCERT2008)?<br><br>If there was sufficient response from the list, efforts could then be<br>made to look for sponsors, speakers, and other bodies required to pull
<br>it all together as AUSNOG-1.<br><br>This means that it is now up to you all to raise your voices in a<br>crescendo of interest...<br><br>Cheers<br>Terry<br><br>On 01/06/2007, at 7:43 AM, Bevan Slattery wrote:<br><br>>
