Hi,I would like to see more money spent on technical work that would make the Internet generally work better.
Work in the areas of AQM (bufferbloat), IP/WIFI interaction (how to make wifi work better for IP networks) would be nice to continue. People like Dave Täht and Jim Gettys know who would benefit from getting funded.
Work to make hardware get more free to put FOSS on, not less. Latest FCC initiative to lock down radio device firmware to assure regulative compliance isn't helping FOSS, it's harming it.
Measurement, we need to understand how the Internet actually works and behaves, to be able to make it better. We need to measure BCP38 compliance (antispoofing) in order to get more eyes on the problem, which is the root of the DDoS problem we see increasing. Less spoofing means less reflection attacks. UDP is being destroyed by DDoS because of reflection attacks enabled by spoofing.
