Another day here at ARIN 33 in the Windy City of Chicago, and it breezed by rather quickly. Instead of a long-winded explanation, this short daily recap should help you get up to speed.
A record number of policies were covered during this Public Policy Meeting. In total, a whopping 14 policies were on the docket. Today, the seven draft policies that were added to that count included:
All of these discussions will be posted online in webcast, complete transcript, and abbreviated note form in the upcoming weeks, but in the meantime you can refer to the presentation slides already posted on the ARIN website.
Besides policy discussions, we blew through a few other agenda items as well. An NRO global coordination activities update included details on ICANN discussions, I* collaboration, NETmundial, and /1net. We heard from the NRO Number Council and ICANN ASO on the status of global policy proposals of which there are none at this moment. We also viewed many worldwide Internet number resources statistics on ASN, IPv4, and IPv6 allocations and assignments. Rounding out the day, a call for questions on recent Internet governance topics like the NTIA announcement to transition the IANA functions was issued, and an interesting conversation resulted. We finished with a lively open microphone session that covered a range of topics from encouraging adoption of IPv6 to community participation in ARIN processes.
Again, we enjoyed seeing your tweets about the meeting using the #ARIN33 hashtag. Keep them coming. A few of our favorites from today:
