Just before I shut down for the week...

And I am in conversation with VC funding for IIoT that will build their 
own just like this.  Only one will put any effort into privacy because 
there is no leadship.

Dino and I are connected outside the IETF.  These groups come to us to 
talk, then go back and do their own thing to fill the void.  They will 
NOT come to the IETF, but will take what is offered.
