IETF(_at_)20 Guerilla Party Events for Thursday
**I Need a Pen so I Can Remember Where to Add My Time Capsule Entry Day**
Today, is I need a pen day a lovely little
bugger with the URL for IETF(_at_)20 stuff on it.
These are a nifty accessory in office meetings
when sporting the IETF(_at_)20 tattoo you know,
gives you that coordinated look. Pick up your pen
at the IETF(_at_)20 table. In case you haven?t read
this far before, I will remind you that these are
first-come, first-served and will be placed on
the table at random times during the day. Be mannered and assign randomly.
**IETF(_at_)25 Time Capsule**
Today is the day that we open the vault and you
start predicting the future. Tell us what you
see for the IETF(_at_)25(_dot_) We?ll collect entries
starting today and close the vault during IETF66
in Montreal. The vault will be buried online
somewhere and be opened during IETF?s 25th
anniversary in 2011. So, shine up those crystal
balls, summon your best hallucinations and
predict your favorite future scenarios for the
IETF and the Internet. You?ll be glad you did.
(Or, even better, you might give yourself a huge laugh in 5 years.)
Go here: http://ietf20.isoc.org and choose the
Time Capsule link. It will open after noon Dallas time.
**IETF(_at_)20 Social Video Now Available**
Now playing in the IETF(_at_)20 Theatre that looks
remarkably like a table in the registration area:
video shot on Tuesday at the social. Listen and
learn from David Clark. Catch Ray and the IETF
originals. Laugh at the toasts. Drool over the
cake, the food, the beer. It?s all there for your viewing pleasure.
Prefer still pictures that you can see whilst in
a working group? Check out the fabulous
photography of Patrik Fältström at
http://stupid.domain.name/gallery/internet/ietf/ietf-65 start at roughly 9066.
For the folks that aren?t onsite, we?ll be
archiving the video on the web in a week or two.
Get some fiber installed and then watch it on your monitor.
Think you need this on a DVD? Let me know and
we?ll see about making some dups.
Visit today?s trivia event at
http://ietf20.isoc.org/trivia/. Everyone who
plays and sends in their name today will get a
free fabulous embroidered IETF(_at_)20 T-shirt. This
is your last chance. You?ve seen the t-shirt by
now. You know this is a good thing.
If you were a winner for Wednesday?s event, you
should have received an email from me telling you
so. Pick up your prize during the course of the
IETF65 meeting in the ISOC office. Office hours
will be posted with the winners list on the
IETF(_at_)20 table. The ISOC office is at the Opal
Room on Tower lobby floor across from Business Center.
IETF(_at_)20 Guerilla Partying is sponsored by ISOC
for IETF65. This is for hilarity. None of your
registration fees were used to support these
activities. No plants were harmed during the
planning process. (Okay, a few might have been
picked but definitely not inhaled.) Yes, there
will be different activities each day. And, if
you don?t want to pay attention to the IETF(_at_)20
stuff because it makes you feel too cool or you
are busy trying to catch up on all the sleep
you?ve missed this week, delete these messages.
But first, more stuff on Tuesday?s trivia?
1. One IETF attendee appeared on more than a
dozen IETF name badges at the Stanford IETF -- name him or her. Milo Medin.
From Steve Casner: This was a small revolt
against pressure to wear a name badge during the
IETF meeting. I don't recall who picked Milo's
name to be the one that was replicated, but I can
say that it is a shame we don't have Milo partcipating in IETF any more.
Scott Brim added: It might have been me. I think
Elise Gerich and/or Tracy LaQuey (Parker) were
involved. We should definitely track down Milo.
Now for the Wednesday info?
1. Most protocols are designed as two party
protocols, but one early protocol still in use
today can be used as both a two party and three party protocol. Name it.
FTP. You gotta love it. Good stuff is good stuff.
2. Name the IETF meeting where it was possible to
swim in the ocean, walk past the beach bar, pick
up an alcoholic slurpee and walk straight into the plenary session.
Cocoa Beach... and Scott Brim did just that minus
the slurpee. It must be time to go back there,
isn?t it? Hurricane season is coming soon.
Dallas in monsoon. Cocoa Beach in July?s
hurricane season. There?s a pattern there?.
3. What was the name of the first broadly
deployed protocol that had a capability to transfer email?
FTP. Gosh, is today all about FTP?
4. What is an IMP?
IMP - Interface Message Processor - Packet Switch
on the ARPA Net. This is SO
easy. Seriously. IMPs were pretty giant
contraptions as I recall. Here?s a bit more
trivia and a picture: http://www.livinginternet.com/i/ii_arpanet.htm
5. At one point the IAB named something a
co-standard with SNMP. Name that protocol.
CMOT - CMIP over TCP. Yikes, dare we say
OSI? Go read RFC 1189. Remember when TCP/IP and
OSI were rivals? Seems like so long ago
there?s gotta be a Tales of the IETF story in there somewhere.
