Warmest congrats to LACTLD on its 23rd anniversary. Many happy returns of the day! https://lactld.org/en/lactld-turns-23/

All the past records fell with the number of registrations for APTLD80 & Pacific IGF have surpassed the mark of 440, and more yet to come! We are happy to see the Pacific folks’ interest and enthusiasm: Fiji is in the lead with 59 registrants, followed by Samoa (40), PNG (35), Tonga (26), Kiribati and Solomon Islands (18 each), and Tuvalu. Hope it is not the end of the story yet as we have another week to go!  #APTLD80 #pacigf

Curious what we are up to at APTLD80 & Pacific Internet Governance Forum (A Joint Forum) #NetGov #Net_Gov #PacIGF ? Check out just a single highlight and get amazed at seeing representatives of 3(!) continents and the vastest region on the planet on the same panel.    Poster of Session 9A: RDAP
