I guess I'm quite fortunate to be working for a company that doesn't
operate like that. In an environment where internet technologies are
dominating the traditional ILEC service provider landscape, management here
seems to be quite eager to find out what kind of technical horizons we're
going to have to deal with, and dealing with them sooner rather than later.

It certainly helps to have good technical information to present to
management - and the letter ARIN send out a while back was a great move. I
still think that an organization is going to be better off by making
grounded decisions in reality - and of course I'd like to think the tech
folks have their ears closest to the tracks - than by ARIN telling
organizations, via their tech folks, that they have to do it.
