- Characterizing the IETF through the lens of RFC deployment — Ignacio Castro discusses a recent study on characterizing the demographics and trends in the IETF across its history and how this has impacted the evolution of the Internet.
- Working Latency — the next QoE frontier — Jason Livingood explains how Comcast has reduced its working latency by 90% through Active Queue Management, and fundamental changes in the way that researchers are now looking at latency. Read more in this blog post.
