  • Thread-topic: [dow3tf] Fwd: Reformatted Task force 3 survey for distribution

Sarah is traveling, so I've undertaken the requested distribution she and I were asked to do. 

I've distributed to the telecom companies mentioned, except for Verizon, Sarah's company. I've distributed to the two US based ISP associations; I don't need the email addresses. I have them. :-) 

I've also distributed internally, and via one of the associations will reach e-Bay. I've sent to Microsoft's Washington office, but I don't know that is a good way to reach them. :-)

I've also sent to the Virginia ISP Association, to reach a number of very small ISPs in the US.

Dear Barbara,

I have put together the questionnaire, as kindly reformatted by Sarah
Deutsch and Marilyn Cade with the covering paragraph by Brian Darville.

Would you please be so kind as to ask Kent to distribute  the surveys to the
addresses that are below in the same way as he did for task force 2? It is a
bit difficult to discern addresses as some companies on the list have no
e-mail address. Would it be best to send the survey to each task force
member with a covering note from you asking the person to distribute the
survey to the contacts he/she suggested?

Perhaps this could still go out today Monday 2 February, 2004?

List of task force members and e-mail addresses:

Sarah Deutsch:sarah.b.deutsch@xxxxxxxxxxx 
Marilyn Cade (alternate):mcade@xxxxxxx 
Ken Stubbs: ken@xxxxxxxxx 
Greg Ruth: greg_ruth@xxxxxxxxx 
Frannie Wellings: wellings@xxxxxxxx 
Ross Rader: ross@xxxxxxxxxx 
Brian Darville:bdarville@xxxxxxxxx 
Terry Clarke: tclark@xxxxxxx 
Kiyoshi Tsuru: ktsuru@xxxxxxxxxxx 
Vittorio Bertola: vb@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx 

In the mail above, you will note two contacts with addresses as sent by
Sarah Deutsch:
Here are two  ISP associations worth contacting that represent both large
and small ISPs around the US:

USIIA -- Dave McClure -- dmcclure@xxxxxxxxx

USISPA -- Stewart Baker -- sbaker@xxxxxxxxxxx
(Please ask Kent if he can kindly the  decode the address)

In the above mail you will note two cantacts with addresses sent by Ross

Thanks so much, Barbara,
