#APTLD80– #pacigf: Reaching out across the Pacific.
Still a month to go, the joint APTLD80 & Pacific IGF has stirred a great enthusiasm and it is interesting to examine a registrations page at https://aptld80.com.fj for an improvised leaderboard:
On the top of the list is the host nation of Fiji with 30 registrations; Tonga with 21 registrations is catching up; Vanuatu is holding the 3rd line with 11 registrations, chased by Samoa (9), Tuvalu and Solomon Islands (7); while KiribatiCook Islands and PNG and Nauru are yet to fire up their boosters.
The overall number of registrations is now soaring to 180 – another sign of interest on the community’s part. The agenda is complete at 99% but some hallmark fun stuff still is under development to ignite more thrill. Stay tuned!

When you are in the mood for challenging a heavyweighter- Prof. Yudho Giri Sucahyo and Yusuf Nurrachman held a webinar on .ID vs .COM: Mengapa Harus Domain .ID? (in Indonesian)   Poster & Video at: https://www.rumahweb.com/webinar/
