By the time you read this the 65th IETF meeting in Dallas will be over. This meeting represents a milestone, as the IETF is now more than 20 years old. The IETF has been the major player in almost all important - and quite a few not so important - Internet and IP network technologies for the past two decades. Not bad for an activity that has never had any legal existence.

The first IETF meeting was held in San Diego on Jan. 16 and 17, 1986. Twenty-one people attended, four of whom are still very active in the task force. That meeting focused on some topics - including routing and QoS - that were discussed by 1,200 or so people during this year's Dallas meeting.
