Significant Announcement (re: IPv4) 3 February - Watch it Live!

It started at 9:25 am -- I normally tune in to online videos late, but I'm
glad I checked earlier.

It definitely started at 9:30, and it was very short.

Boring actually.  But that's the way it should have been.  Not like this was
a surprise.  Even the reporter from ZDNet asked "since we gave out the last
2 to APNIC last week, why is this day important?"  If ZDNet gets it, NANOG
(actually *NOG) members should as well.

That said, I guess just like when any long time friend leaves us, we should
have a ceremony to mark the passing.
