Re: Way to go!

The main problem I see is that his thoughts on network neutrality are too far out there.
Yeah he's in like, crazy town, dude.
His only preferred solution has been to suggest that ISPs expand bandwidth capacity to handle any amount of traffic demanded regardless of cost.
Not true. I've talked with him a lot, and he's made it clear he supports both increased capacity and intelligent traffic management -- as long as it's transparent.
I think it very unfortunate that he may have more visibility in pushing his agenda.
Yeah it should really suck to have an intelligent network engineer helping consumer advocates and consumers better understand bandwidth and network topology.

i would like to add that transparency does not always quell speculation or "armchair quarterbacking", as any frequent visitor to our teksavvy forums will be quick to recognize. sure there are people who are very knowledgeable on the topic at hand, but more often than not, their message is silenced by those who yell the loudest, or by those who *appear* to know but are only pushing the agenda of those who are paying them the most...

Looking At Rob's resume, I don't think I would describe him as a Network Engineer. Intelligent, yes....Maybe an intelligent Software tester and QA Specialist.

qft! my thoughts exactly.
you can read and discuss until you are blue in the face, but unless you have lived it, breathed it, done it...you don't really understand the little idiosyncracies etc...
its exactly the argument that many people make between academia and the workforce...

If you read his posts starting around page 42 on the network congestion managment topic in the comcast hsi section I think his ideas could bring about the internet in such a way that all of the IP based serives would work side by side without problem
