• APTLD at South School on Internet Governance: the art of crooning for the Latin American audience. (Photo)


• Many happy returns to. РФ, a pioneer IDN ccTLD, still towering amidst - let's be honest- its dwarfy peers. For nearly 800K registrations is a monumental achievement, n'est pas?
• That how it was in Bangkok at the cybersecurity workshop. Thanks, THNIC, for hosting this groundbreaking event. (Photo)
• Seoul is calling: https://community.icann.org/display/GSEAPAC/APIGA+2019, https://www.facebook.com/ap.ig.academy/, and APTLD is going to launch a Call for Applications for APIGA-2019 soon.

• Many talk about social responsibility, but very few keep silent about it and quitely do a very important job - keen to help out to those who cannot talk or hear. Check out how InternetNZ does it wthout much ado (and you'd better understand the concept and meaning of empathy, too): Video
• THNIC Hosts a Regional Cybersecurity Workshop, Paul Vixie Spreading the Word. APTLD is proud to have Mr. Sampath Hennayake as our Fellow participate in this important educational and awareness-raising effort: https://www.thnic.or.th/en/cyber-security-workshop-kicked-off/
