    From Paul ViXXXie's Sleeper Cell in Toronto Comes

    From Paul ViXXXie's Sleeper Cell in Toronto Comes


    Joe Abley has been a contributor to the NANOG list for many years, and an attendee at face-to-face meetings since he moved to North America from New Zealand in 2000. Joe has presented at several NANOG meetings, both in the main session and in the tutorial session. He has run the PGP key signing parties at NANOG many times, and has a good working relationship with Merit staff.

    Joe has been involved in the organisation of all NZNOG meetings to date, with the particular responsibility of soliciting proposals for presentations and workshops from international speakers. He presented one of two keynote speeches at the first SANOG meeting in Kathmandu, Nepal, and has been a member of the SANOG programme committee since it was formed. Joe has presented at or otherwise assisted with several AfNOG meetings, and is a volunteer instructor for the Network Startup Resource Center (NSRC). He is chair of the DNS-SIG at APNIC, and recently joined the APRICOT programme committee. Joe has helped organise and teach in DNS workshops hosted by the Internet Society and the NSRC for the benefit of ccTLD registries in developing regions.

    Through the global deployment of the F root server, Joe has come into contact with many different operator communities in Africa, the middle east, Europe, Australasia and South- and East-Asia. This wide perspective would be helpful both in the solicitation of proposals for NANOG meetings from outside the region, and in more general proposal evaluation.

    Joe is engaged in hands-on network operations in ISC's network in California, a three-site, multi-gigabit, multi-vendor network with high transit and peering path splay which has supported native IPv6 and IPv4/IPv6 multicast for many years. ISC also operates over twenty additional nodes around the world (in North America and elsewhere). ISC's networks support high-profile free software projects, root/TLD nameservers and various (other) notable DDoS targets, as well as providing transit for numerous worthy causes in the San Francisco Bay Area.

    In past roles, Joe was responsible for the design and implementation of large carrier convergence networks in New Zealand, and was involved in the operation of the backbone network at MFN/AboveNet. At MFN he also worked in the Tools group, and worked with CAIDA and WAND on instrumentation and measurement projects. CAIDA is also currently engaged in traffic measurement projects with ISC.

    Joe has close working and personal relationships with engineers at ISPs and carriers in central Canada (in particular, those who exchange traffic at the Toronto and Ottawa Internet Exchanges), and believes he is somewhat well-known throughout the effective catchment of NANOG through his participation in operator meetings and mailing lists. He works from his home in London, Ontario, Canada. He now counts Canadian amongst his various nationalities, and hence is formally a North American, even if he don't sound like one :-)

    Joe's participation in Internet community activities such as NANOG is supported by ISC, who continue to fund his involvement in them both in terms of time (and expenses, as necessary).
