Wow. Decades, multiple? That's impressive, but when I think "decades"
it seems to be by minimum definition "2 10 year periods, totalling at
least 20 years". I can't say that I have "decades of real-world
experience" in tying my own shoes (I was a big velcro fan), much less
"shaping the network industry".
Of course, I'm no Rohit. Could be that at tender age 4, back in 1979,
Rohit was hanging out in the sandbox with the other playground visionaries
in Ithaca. "You know, this whole network concept has something. Pass me
the Bulldozer. No, the Tonka One. Yeah, I bet we could make an industry
out of this."
Really, I'm just jealous that no one writes such silly descriptions
inflating my worth. Maybe I should start:
"JTS represents highly nitpicky minutiae specialists, and has decades of
experience at real-world problem solving and correcting others. JTS is a
massive repository of sarcasm, bad literature, and interconnectedness
trivia, and he's not afraid to use it. We're ecstatic to have JTS on the
board of Wilson, Jabroni, and Sons, and we fully expect his flying
famasser to 'bring down the house' in our next Board meeting."
