Congratz on the Diane Rehm show appearance last week.
Thanks to podcasting we get it over here in the UK.
I liked the reference to the AoIR list. Yes, even we Internet
Researchers reply to list instead of the individual. While it must be
terribly embarrassing for the individuals that do that, I often find
the direct emails that get to the list fascinating and each list seems
to have its own rituals of apology, telling off etc.
