interconnection coincidence?

There's a longish thread over at mitmit from an applicant about what the 'tute is like, etc. I have a bit of a subthread going with pwaa, who has radiaperlman as a friend. Turns out this is the Radia Perlman, author of Interconnections Second Edition. I'm reviewing sections of the book right now to help bring me up to speed on things I will need to know to get a peering coordinator job (or a router software development job, for that matter).

Oh, and one more thing (sorry gregbo for cluttering your journal)...the not working hard thing, I think I know what you're referring to - that was the comment about some students having a hard time at MIT because they're not used to having to go to class and doing the reading, because high school was very easy for them. But I didn't mean to imply that would be the *only* reason someone might do badly at MIT - so you're confusing the cause and effect of my implication. (Implication is, MIT can be hard if you don't put in effort, not that if MIT is hard that you didn't put in effort, and not even necessarily that if you do put in effort that MIT is not hard, because that would depend upon your major, but there are definitely majors where basically, if you put in a reasonable amount of effort, you will get A's in most of the classes, and I was in two of those majors, so what I'm saying is that I had it easier than others, not the other way around.)
