&#167;Well, I did a search on the ietf web site for "IPv8". Nope, no matches
&#167;there. What *are* you on about?
&#167;

The IETF is part of the "implosive", central, CORE (no pun intended), transport.
The IETF is a small, *protocol-centric* group. IPv8 is *platform-oriented* and
builds around the edges of the central, implosive IPv4/6 core transport network.

The IETF people generally pride themselves on building the Internet around the
edges of the centralized, bureaucracy of the large teleco monopolies. The ISOC
and IETF have now become the same as those bureaucracies.

IPv8 is a new beginning around the edges of BOTH of these implosive groups.
It is not surprising that your search of that site would produce nothing. This is
actually good news. It shows that people working on IPv8 are staying away
from the implosive black-hole of the core that will absorb all creativity and
homogenize it into the bureauracracy.

In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with dealing with both worlds on
a regular basis. One simply has to understand which group they are dealing
with. Based on your comments, I sense that you are part of the implosive
telco-like core. That is fine, but I hope that you understand that it is not
for everyone. That is trailing-edge. Some prefer to work at the leading edge.
