Pissing off the Peering Guru's.

This is one of the most hilarious threads on Gigaom for a long while. Richard Bennett (a guy who writes anything you pay him for) tried to bring paid peering into the net neutrality debate. It seems everybody is weighing in: Vijay Gill (Google), Patrick Gilmore (Akamai), Richard Steenbergen (nLayer) etc.

Andrew Odlyzko should also have a look as his MINTS institute is given a snide remark as well.

All of it seems to have been the result of Bill Norton writing as Dr. Peering

I respected Bill alot, but this piece is just off the mark. There seems no basis for it whatsoever.

and of course the obligatory link to my Peering and Transit introduction.

Update: CircleID also weighs in with: Dr. Peering commits malpractice on Net Neutrality.
