• APTLD was more than represented in the session on APrIGF, Internet Governance in the AP region- State of Play and Outlook. Sitting on the panel were Yudho Sicario (.ID), Kenny Huang (.TW), and, remotely, Ellen Strickland (.NZ), with GM APTLD as a moderator. It was a very good experence of a very intense interaction with the young audience who at times proved more knowlegeable than the IG veterans. A white board we used to entry deliberations and conclusions was small to accommodate all of them (hint: students added the formulas later just for fun, of course ^_^).
