most asked question in RIPE81: do you see my screen?
Board recommended that vote!
my solution to that was to have my iphone monitoring the publish stream
you personally did, as the chair of the meeting.. I sure do miss CK
Remco van Mook
the board took over all of the TF recommendations
Kurt: Fun fact: The most asked question on a Monday morning to the Meet & Greet team in a physical meeting is:......
"Where are the toilets"
That's a very good question~
Remco van Mook
I don't see how that has to do with anything but thanks for sharing that with me Elvis
@Nathalie: very funny..
So much for explaining to people the difference between RIPE and the RIPE NCC :-)
how many times did you get asked that question this week, Nathalie?
As a conference organiser, my experience is that you can plaster the venue with signs about the toilets, and still it will be the most frequently asked question.
Oh. I've seen the slides as well :(
Elvis: you would be surprised :)
@mir: time for a different name to distinguish?
second most asked question at M&G is: when will the t-shirts be handed out
sasha: same goes for office buildings. We have the reception to the left, engineering to the right when you exit the elevator. and signs. multiple... guess what...
I propose calling RIPE NCC just The NCC. So there would be the RIPE and the NCC.
RIPE & RNCC
I do really think that the similarity in name increases the confusion.
Sasha, it's honestly on my list of "if I had a time machine I would..." :)
But in other regions it's even worse! They don't even have a distinction in the name...
RNC is too close to RNCC for me
There is no APNIC NCC
@Nathalie so people cannot make mistakes
I think more accurately there is no APNIC version of RIPE.
And there is on ARIN version of RIPE.
There is only the RIPE NCC equivalent.
But it may be much harder to stop people discussing Association issues on the community working groups
I agree Shane
different policy making a governance models so not possible to compare
Also true Kaveh. Comparisons are imperfect!
ARIN version of RIPE is called NANOG, isn't it?
asia has apricot
NANOG has no working groups, I think. NANOG also has no policy discussion, right?
One might say RIPE is close to NANOG+ARIN Policy Meeting and RIPE NCC is similar to ARIN, but even then the governance and liabilities are very different
No wonder people are confused :)
Diversity is healthy
the purpose of people is confusion
to make it harder for ITU to take over Internet-dictatorship
Yeah the reason for region-based RIRs is to match the structure and policies to make them work best for the region.
Correct Randy but APRICO does not make policy, RIPE does. So probably APRICOT+APNIC Policy SIGs are close to RIPE and APNIC to RIPE NCC
emea separates ripe from the ncc but the whois combines the registry and the irr. we are such funny monkeys.

RIPE meetings used to be WGs + plenary with reports from the work done in the WGs. Then European Operators Forum was added at the beginning, which later turned into todays plenary.
big +1 Nigel. The region has decided on this model and the good news is the model is open to bottom-up change so if the region thinks there are better models, no one can stop the region to change the governance model
Kaveh: yes, exactly
Nadira Al Araj
Well appreciated efforts and congrat to all who took part of this process
yes - thanks to the whole NomCom!
I actually see all of the ongoing task-forces as RIPE's organic evolutionary process to receive-feedback, understand short-comings, propose changes for a stronger community, and then executing them. So a healthy cycle, as long as they are frequent and constitute results in actual changes.
rüdiger, i miss you in preson
@Daniel thanks. Chairing a NOMCOM is hard work.
Niall: +1 for pronounciation of my name!
May be too sentimental, but since I feel I am among friends, I miss all of you in person!
very much so
Eric van Uden
Falk von Bornstaedt
Very much so
Send us a picture, Herve :-)
+1 on the picture :)
Anders Mundt Due
it's good to have a virtual ripe, it's a lot better to be there in person.
I am not sure, but one upside is that at least I do not need to get dressed
I'd very much like to get dressed to be able to meet you all in person!
Hello! *waves* :)
well done Niall
'prosím' is the word that was suddenl added to the announcements in the Praha subway. Incidentally this co-incided with a mjor political change ... i found it amusing.
We need good candidates from the number community to the ICANN Board. Please apply!
Feel free to approach Hervé, Filiz or me if you have questions about this.
ICANN board, one bridge too far for me personally .
The Seat 10 is filled by Akinori Maemura. Ron da Silva's term is coming to an end as Hervé has explained. So this is the other seat on the ICANN Board appointed by the ASO AC.
Will van Gulik
merci hervé !
i agree we need good people on that board though!
what's the link between IANA and ICANN-ASO ?
merci. great improvisation!
and sorry not having been able to show myself
We'll forgive you :-)
Will van Gulik
not a problem, worked out well :)
saying the folks on UTC...
