• .AM is hosting the Eastern European DNS Forum in October. (Video) This means that:
1) Eastern Europe's DNS has not become a part of "another" Internet, notwithstanding some governments' claims, thank God;
2) Though a part of North Asia, Armenia has long made its European choice notwithstanding;
3) Well done and good luck,. AM, notwithstanding!
• Roshini Peter has recently become the first APTLD Executive Fellow to explore a leading registry's best practices.   APTLD benefits from its unique georgraphic position which enables us to send our Members reps across 2/3 of the globe. Yet more beneficial is the network of great friends we developed over years. Many thanks to SIDN and its leadership for hosting Roshini Peter - looking at her smile no one would dare claim it has been a depressing experience. Nor do the hosts look unhappy, which means she did very well : ) (36 Photos)
• Looks like someone at TWNIC has mastered some magic: These two ccTLDs drove two thirds of all domain growth in Q2
• The welcome dinner after day 1 of #APTLD76 turns out to be a very glamorous affair, thanks to host MYNIC, an agency under @SKMM_MCMC, & the government of Johor.
• Global domain growth hits a new low of 3.1%.  European #ccTLDs see signs of rebound while new #gTLDs continue to fall.  .com remains strong gaining market share.  Full interactive report athttps://stats.centr.org/stats/global via @CENTRnews
