ARIN Update - Always nice to know what's happening in our local RIR.
Cat Gurinsky - Apple
Global NOG Alliance Task Force: Keep Ukraine Connected -This was probably my favorite from N85, mainly because the war is such a hot topic on the news all the time, and it was fascinating and inspiring to see all the work these people are doing to keep the internet up and running in the middle of war zones. They are doing such incredibly needed work right now.
Panel: World IPv6 Reunion Tour 2022 - This was so great to hear all the stories of the early days of trying to launch IPv6. The spread of panelists was great, too; all had intriguing experiences to share.
Panel: An overview of EU and African NOGS - I loved hearing about the different experiences each group has had in forming their NOG, staying in touch during COVID, and surviving breaks from in-person meetings, and I also found the ENOG disbandment story highly interesting (and sad) as a result of the current war.
Tutorial: Optical Fiber Capacity Limits - Where Do We Go Next? - This was a very educational talk, even for someone like me who has seen other very in-depth optical tutorials given at prior NANOGs by other speakers. I found Geoff to be a very good speaker, and he was able to keep my attention throughout the entire lengthy but highly detailed tutorial.
Kam Agahian - Oracle
Women in Executive Leadership - Unique and long-awaited panel. Speakers were from diverse backgrounds and the topics discussed were indeed real challenges to many people.
