    • Hi,
      You may recall that at the last APOPS session during the APNIC meeting in 
      Taipei we heard reports from several exchange points and had some 
      discussion on IXPs within the AP region.
      Following on from this, Hideo Ishii and I requested that APNIC consider 
      forming an IXP Special Interest Group as there was clear interest in the 
      whole topic. I proposed this at the APNIC plenary and the audience agreed 
      that this was a good idea.
      The SIG mailing list will be created very soon now, but in the meantime I'd 
      like to ask for volunteers who would be willing to be chair or co-chair of 
      the Special Interest Group. As with the other APNIC SIGs, the chair or 
      co-chair is expected to pull the agenda together for the SIG meeting, and 
      obviously chair the meeting during the 6-monthly APNIC conferences... Some 
      work is involved, so would suit motivated IXP operators or supporters... :-)
      Anyone who is interested, please let either Hideo Ishii or me know.
