You have a lot of talent and in my opinion you have to make
sure that your expectations are properly set. Also, I suggest
that you find a venue where your talents can be enhanced
and where your time is not wasted. In my opinion, many of
the talented people in these forums will be following that
path. If they do not, then they are wasting their own time and
will have to be responsible for their own frustrations.
The U.S. Government appears to have all of these matters
under control. The problems seem to now be well understood
and the solutions are clear. The U.S. Government's strategy
should also be clear. Again, the parallels with Cuba are striking.
I suggest that you study the history of that island nation that
sits 90 miles from the U.S. Many people have wasted a lot of
time over the years hoping it will change. It has not.
Will the IPv4/6 core transport network change ? I doubt it.
Will the people living on the IPv4/6 core "island" change ?
I doubt it. Those that are happy will remain and will ensure
that change does not occur. In some cases their happiness
will depend on nothing changing. They will therefore fight for
the status quo or at least stand their ground making sure that
Will the rest of the planet move forward ? I hope so. I have
confidence that the best and the brightest will not get bogged
down in the status quo of the IPv4/6 island society. In fact
there is progress all around and in the three short years that
many of these debates have been taking place an enormous
amount of progress has been made in the "free world".
In summary, if you want to work on leading edge developments
you have to seek those in the free world. It is there. Just look
for it. You might be surprised what you find....
