  • NLR FutureFunded through 12/31/08 with current commitments (some expire 6/30/08 and some 6/30/09)Erv Blythe (Chair of I2 BoD) report to Network Policy Council (EDUCAUSE CIOs):NLR has several future paths, ranging from the spectacularly rich and positive on the one extreme, to the folding of the endeavor on the other extremeExpect one of the middle paths to prevail:a major subset of the members continue to support the current model, including developing the capital to begin an upgrade of the infrastructure, ora major player steps forward with the commitment of capital for a major upgrade, with new application requirements, and with new revenues to enable the subsidization and preservation of a significant, protected R&E part of an expanded infrastructureEmphasized under any future scenario, expected an absolute commitment to maintaining control of the IRU's for the benefit of broad R&E and economic development interestsStressed NLRs desire to work in a complementary and non-competitive way with I2Do not believe that either the NLR or the I2 Boards would be willing to look again at merger in the next couple of years.
