Hmm. I thought the Internet was for everyone.
Exactly. We're here to *get work done* for everyone, not to contribute
to some warm-and-fuzzy political feel-good agenda. If meetings elsewhere
contribute to getting work done, they should be held elsewhere. If meetings
elsewhere are being done to be "correct" or "fair", we're doing them elsewhere
for the Wrong Reasons.
Of course, I've never actually made it to an IETF, so it doesn't matter
much to me where they're held ;)

he had gotten more than four hour's sleep ;)
