Internet governance

IGF 2013 theme recommended

Last week, APNIC's Director General, Paul Wilson participated in the second Open Consultation and Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) meeting for the 2013 Internet Governance Forum as a member of the MAG, which acts as the IGF program committee. The transcripts of those meetings are available online. The MAG recommended the main theme "Building Bridges: Enhancing multistakeholder cooperation for growth and sustainable development" to the United Nations, along with several possible sub-themes. You can review past IGF themes to see how they have evolved.

The IGF program will come together during the next few months based upon these proposed themes. It is important for the technical community to participate in national, regional, and global Internet governance initiatives to share information that will not only inform the IGF program, but also facilitate better policy decisions that affect all Internet users. If you would like to share your expertise, you can register as a Resource Person to participate in a panel. If you would like to hold a booth, Open Forum, or Dynamic Coalition at IGF 2013, the deadline for submissions is 30 June, 2013.

APNIC Blabs: But that's impossible!

The APNIC Labs team has been running an experiment on IPv6 readiness on the global Internet, where several website administrators have agreed to use a javascript test code to track their visitors' capability. Other measurements are taken through online advertisements.

The tests, which have measured up to 1 million clients every day, have produced some unexpected results! Read the full post about the IPv6 DNS query experiment.
