APTLD78 now is just 7 registered attendees short of the Grand Master Mark of 100 and its agenda is nearly 100% complete – check out http://aptld78.tw/agenda/ for details.
 
Change of leadership at NIXI:
Mr. Anil Kumar Jain has been appointed CEO #NIXI by Ministry of Electronics & IT (MeitY). He has taken over charge w.e.f. 31st July 2020 as full time CEO on regular basis.
Mr. Anil Kumar Jain is an Indian Telecommunications Service (ITS) veteran as he spent approx 36 years in the Indian Telecom Sector, serving in various assignments at DOT/BSNL/ MTNL. He has also been on the NIXI Board for more than 12 years.
Under his leadership, NIXI will definitely grow much bigger and stronger and contribute significantly to the Indian internet ecosystem and APTLD. We welcome Mr. Jain to the APTLD community and look forward to meeting him in person as and when the situation normalize.
Meanwhile we thank Mr. Goel, the outgoing CEO of NIXI, for his contribution to and keen interest in APTLD’s operation and wish him every success in his new job.
 
We have made it – the new APTLD website at https://aptld.org/
Our thanks go to the #hosterby ‘s development team: Yury Karytsin, Olga Zherdetskaya, Igor Obernikhin are a designer and coding team par excellence, while Sergei Povalishev, the CEO made every effort to speed up the cycle. Thank you, our dear friends from Belarus!!! 
Our thanks also go to the CNNIC team for both running the website for over 3 years and helping with a smooth database migration.
Now enjoy the new toy, everyone!
