Day 1 of ARIN 33 blew by in the heart of the Windy City, Chicago. In case this first day swept by you, here’s a recap of what happened today.
First and foremost, we tackled several draft policies that sparked interesting debate among ARIN 33 attendees onsite and online. The seven we discussed today included:
At the start of the day we got an update from the Advisory Council Chair about on-docket proposals. Then we took a look at what is going on with policies in other regions around the world including proposals related to both IPv4 and IPv6. We heard Registration Services’ policy experience examining whether new/first time ISP requestors will be able to qualify for IPv4 space under existing ARIN policies after free pool depletion.
An IPv6 IAB/IETF Activities Report took a look at what is going on at Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) meetings. And an API Software and Development Toolkit session explained how getting an API is easy and ARIN Community Projects. Results from ARIN’s recent customer survey were presented and the community was informed they will be available on the website in the coming weeks.
We were reminded of how the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process works and how to participate, and lastly we heard about the software development projects that have been completed since the last ARIN meeting (like a migration from Oracle to PostgreSQL, a feedback button on the ARIN website, and several others).
We caught a few you using the #ARIN33 hashtag on Twitter, and encourage you to keep on sharing. Here are few of our favorite tweets so far:
