:-)

Not necessarily recent, but essential, like TCP and DNS. We started
out with people choosing areas important to them and exploring them. I
think that's a good way to continue. However, the random pick is great
if you want to get out of your usual rut. I plan on using it some. I
like discovering unexplored regions of the IETF's oeuvre. If the
random pick gives you an RFC you don't think is worth reviewing, just
spin again -- it's free!
