Hey All,

One more little bit for Wed. meeting:

ARIN 38!
If nobody objects, I’d like to give a brief report from ARIN proceedings, and a quick report on Internet and Numbers related issues the BSD community can strategically make a great impact with, (and how to help and engage!)

Unless there are any objections, I’ll just plan to spend 5 (10) minutes on it!
